What has 40,000 wings and flies?

A small plane covered with honeybees.

The owner of a flight training center at the Beverly, Mass., airport found a swarm of bees on the left wing of one of his planes.

The man called police, who suggested he contact local bee removal expert Al Wilkins.

He used a specially designed vacuum to suck the bees off the wing.

Wilkins figures there about 10,000 bees on that plane.

He says the queen probably stopped for a rest and the rest of the swarm followed.
