"I lost sight of him for a second and then I heard a boom and all of a sudden I have a turkey vulture sitting on my lap up against my chest and on my forearm," Appleton recalled. "I don't know the exact size or weight of it, but it was a pretty big bird."
Appleton decided it would not be safe to push the big bird out, so the buzzard rode for twenty miles sitting in the pilot's lap. When the helicopter landed, the bird flew out, stumbled around for a while, then flew off for good. The incident was captured on video. Link -via Arbroath
