(Daily Caller) Although one elderly woman was flying with Lucky Air, she apparently decided a little extra luck wouldn’t hurt. She was wrong.
As passengers boarded flight 8L9960 out of Anqing, Anhui, China Wednesday, several noticed 76-year-old Ms. Fang throwing objects into the engine. Coins, presumably for good luck, were discovered on the tarmac beside the airplane, according to Chinese media. The aircraft was grounded for safety reasons, and authorities detained the elderly woman.
Safety personnel conducted a thorough inspection of the aircraft, preventing the plane from departing for Kunming, Yunnan, China until the next day. Fang was not on board.
