SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A story you may have seen claims an airline was forced to cancel a flight after a man threw coins into the plane's engine for good luck.
It's true. The passenger decided to throw six coins wrapped in red paper into the engine of a flight on China's Beibu Gulf Airlines.
In a statement, the airline said the staff caught on after finding coins on the ground during pre-takeoff inspection. The crew recovered all the coins but canceled the flight for safety reasons, forcing all 148 passengers to wait an extra day to fly.
The coin-thrower was detained by police.
