AN airline executive says a pilot on a cargo flight found a snake loose in his aircraft and turned back to Darwin, reports The Associated Press.

In a scene reminiscent of the 2006 movie Snakes on a Plane, pilot Braden Blennerhassett saw the snake's head pop out from under the dashboard of his twin-engine Beechcraft Baron G58 shortly after takeoff from Darwin airport, said the report.

Air Frontier director Geoff Hunt said that the pilot was a "cool character" who told air traffic control: "I'm going to have to return to Darwin. I've got a snake on the plane."

The reptile quickly slithered away. A snake handler was later unable to find the snake, which might have escaped after the plane landed. The snake's species is not known, said the report.
