Chinese passenger chucks coins into plane's engine for luck

A flight from Shanghai to Guangzhou was delayed over five hours on Tuesday after an elderly passenger threw a handful of coins at one of its engines to bestow luck upon the passengers.

Some of the passengers reportedly saw her throwing coins at the engine for "blessings" from the middle of the boarding staircase and notified the crew.

The elderly woman was detained by police at Shanghai Pudong International Airport following the weird incident, forcing almost 150 passengers to be evacuated from the plane bound for Guangzhou in southern China.

Passengers on the plane alarmed police when they spotted Qiu flipping the coins.

The statement said the passenger causing the delay was 80-year-old and her surname is Qiu.

Even more frustratingly for the other passengers, her aim was awful - eight of the nine coins missing the target, but the other nestled in the engine. One of the coins entered the engine.
