An alligator stopped an airplane on a runway as it was taxiing to the arrival gate at an Orlando airport.
A pilot flying a Spirit Airlines flight from Baltimore to Orlando International Airport told passengers just moments after landing that there was a delay in getting to the gate.
‘Believe it or not, we have to wait for an alligator that’s in the middle of the runway,’ the pilot said.
Airport officials deployed a truck in an attempt to get the gator to scurry off into a nearby pond.
After the gator was out of the way, the airplane continued on to its arrival gate.
