An adventurous cat has survived a flight clinging to the wing of a light aircraft.

A video of the stowaway moggy has been uploaded to YouTube by pilot Romain Jantot after he unexpectedly spotted the cat on the wing of his plane during a flight.

Initially the cat is out of sight, but as the plane gains height, the cat comes creeping in towards the pilot and his passenger, who don't notice their feline friend for a minute or two.

When they do they land immediately and the cat springs, unharmed, down to the runway.

“A standard flight until … I still don’t know if it got in after the pre-flight check or if I missed it,” says Jantot. “The cat is doing well, she is still our mascot.”
