It’s been 10 years since Samuel L. Jackson helped save a plane full of people from a group of deadly snakes. And now, it seems that sometimes real life can get just as strange as fiction!
Via Gizmado, Twitter user Indelicio Medina was on a commercial flight to Mexico City when this little castaway made it’s presence known.
La vibora voladora…ja ja ja. Una experiencia única en el Vuelo Torreón-México, vuelo 231 de Aeroméxico. Eso si…Prioridad en aterrizaje. pic.twitter.com/qwDk6Wtszw

Medina explained to Associated Press, “I was reading a magazine and the passenger next to me saw it and, ‘Oh my word!'”
Despite the sudden appearance of the reptile, it thankfully didn’t turn into a full on SNAKES ON A PLANE situation. Everyone on board remained calm, unbuckled, waited for it to fully drop before capturing it with blankets.
“It was a frightening situation … but people remained calm because it didn’t get out of that space and nobody became hysterical,” Medina said. “Some people got up to see what kind of reptile it was, but nobody got carried away.”
No harm, no foul! And quite a story to tell friends, huh?
Makes me want to break out this bad-boy on Blu-Ray for a viewing tonight!
