SeaWorld's flying penguins go viral

USA - While it may not have quite as much action as the 2006 movie "Snakes on a Plane", a Southwest Airlines passenger's YouTube video "Penguins on a Plane" has become an internet sensation.

The Magellanic penguins flew from San Francisco, where they had attended a national science convention, to SeaWorld in San Diego on 12 March.

A passenger videoed Pete, one of the feathery flight attendants, as he roamed freely down the aisle.

On the video a SeaWorld staff member can be heard educating the passengers about the birds over the tannoy. It would have made a nice change from listening to the emergency exit procedures!
