Hare raising delays in Milan
A horde (is that the right collective noun) of wild hares caused havoc at Milan's Linate airport over the weekend according to reuters (SMH version here). Seems 57 or more of the beasts found their way onto the tarmac, halting flights for more than 3 hours. Can just see the well dressed and furious Italian travellers lined up at that Alitalia counter wondering where the hell their plane is only to be told by "la mia collega" in green that it was all the fault of cavorting conigli. We can only assume this was accepted by the passengers with the usual sense of Italian calm and resignation. Madam BOOT - do you have a view?
