There are many reasons delays at airports. Sometimes it's bad weather, sometimes it's a technical problem, and other times it's a passenger who is late the boarding gate. Narita Airport Tokyo, Japan has added a new cause flight delays - a turtle going a walk. The runway Narita had to close 12 minutes because a 2.1-kilogram turtle was spotted the tarmac. The pilot of an airplane waiting to take off told air traffic controllers about the small reptile at around 11:35am. There was an immediate search it. This caused the delay of five flights. Airport staff managed to locate the creature. They safely removed it a net. They reported that it was unharmed.

A Narita Airport spokesperson said she believed the turtle lived a nearby pond. It managed to get a fence alongside the airport and crawl the runway. The turtle might have decided to sunbathe because the warm weather. It was a lot warmer than usual the airport for the time of the year. Shortly after the turtle was caught, an A380 airplane took from the runway. By coincidence, the A380 was painted a turtle design. The plane was from the Japanese airline ANA. It was going the island of Okinawa the south of Japan. An ANA spokesperson said: "Turtles are seen as bringing good luck. We hope this turtle, who came to see the flight , signals a bright future."
