March 1 (UPI) -- A chimpanzee rescue group in the Democratic Republic of Congo shared video of a rescued baby chimp receiving an adorable flight to his new home.

The Lwiro Primates rescue and rehabilitation center said the baby chimp, Mussa, was rescued from poachers in Virunga National Park.


The rescue shared video of Mussa taking a plane ride on the lap of pilot Anthony Caere.

The video shows Mussa cuddling with Caere and even receiving a grooming session from the pilot while in the air.

The rescue group said Mussa is being treated for intestinal parasites but is adjusting well to his new home.
