Remove cat before flight

On June 22, this cat stowaway was found in a wing mid-flight on an ultralight aircraft in French Guiana.

The black and white house cat appears in the cockpit camera (which was luckily on) after about 40 seconds after the airplane takes off and is only noticed by the pilot, chief flight instructor Roland Jantot after about a minute.  The expression on his face as he discovers the feline is priceless.

Janot noticed that something was amiss with the aircraft wing and glanced up at the frame, doing an epic double take.  The courageous and probably very confused feline is found clinging to the metal frame on the inside of the wing.

The cat is doing well and is now the mascot of the flight school Club ULM 16-34 in Kourou, French Guiana.
