KOUROU, French Guiana, June 22 (UPI) -- A pilot in French Guiana shared video from an ultralight plane flight featuring a feline stowaway crawling out from inside a wing after takeoff.

Romain Jantot, a pilot with a flight club in Kourou, shared a video on YouTube showing him take off with a female passenger and fly for several seconds before the cat pokes her head out from a wing and appears to be mewling for help.


Jantot does a double-take when he spots the cat, and he and his passenger shoot amused glances toward the feline before setting the plane back down on the ground.

"A standard flight until... [I] still don't know if it got in after the pre-flight check or if I missed it," Jantot wrote in the video's description. "The cat is doing well, she is still our mascot."
