Marshall Aerospace, Hercules stowaway ferret

29 August 2013
A ferret stowaway hitched a ride on a Hercules aircraft and flew to Cambridge from Holland - but has been reported to immigration control.
The feisty illegal immigrant has been reported to the UK Border Agency after the creature snuck onto the giant military C-103 Hercules on Sunday evening and took the one-hour trip from the town of Eindhoven in the Netherlands to Cambridge Airport.

Local journalism at its best - "the 'spell checker says it OK" and two gratuitous plugs for the new Darwin flights

"...he would have crossed busty roads and out runway..."

Perhaps the journalist was talking to the owners chest, or thinking what he wanted, busty out.
