Mmmmaggots on a plane

From the don't-bring-spoiled-meat-onto-a-plane-file, a flight from Atlanta to Charlotte was forced to return to the gate prior to takeoff as maggots fell from the overhead bin onto passengers below.
U.S. Airways spokesman Todd Lehmacher says the maggots were in a container of spoiled meat that a passenger brought onto the plane Monday.
The plane returned to the gate and passengers got off so cleaning crews could clean the overhead bin.
Lehmacher says the flight then continued on to Charlotte, where the plane was taken out of service and fumigated out of an "abundance of caution."
trifecta is now in play.
