An superstitious 80 year old woman wanted to have a safe flight so she tossed coins into a plane's engine for "blessings."
Instead of good luck, however, the senior citizen's move caused a five hour delay. Officials had to collect all the coins, nine in total, before the flight from Shanghai to Guangzhou could take off.
While it definitely led to a few headaches, passengers should be thankful for the delay. If the coins had been sucked up into the engine there could have been serious problems, including full on failure.
