10-Foot Python Rides On Plane Wing, Dies During Flight

WARNING: IT'S HARD TO WATCH THAT POOR BASTARD GETTING BEAT AGAINST THE PLANE DURING FLIGHT, I RECOMMEND NOT WATCHING THE VIDEO UNLESS YOU'RE ADAM OR EVE AND HAVE A SERIOUS THING AGAINST SNAKES.

This is a video of a 3-meter python trying to fly without paying from Australia to Papua New Guinea aboard a Qantas Airlines flight. Things didn't work out too hot for him. And not just because there was no beverage service either.

The snake--an Amethystine python--didn't survive the hard trip, killed either by the 248mph wind (400km/h) or the 10.4F (-12C) temperatures. When the plane arrived to its destination, the snake was still hanging from the wing, already dead.

Aw man, that sucks. My only hope is that he'd always dreamed of flying like a bird and died fulfilling that life-long fantasy. "Get real, GW." I WAS TRYING TO BE POSITIVE. He died f***ing cold and alone, you happy? "Let's go with the bird thing." Well it's too late now!

Hit the jump for the video, but really, you don't need to watch it.

Thanks to Ramie, Odd-one, Dani and skyhigh, who agree that may have been the saddest airshow wing-walking performance of all time.
