A US Airways Express flight taking off from North Carolina was delayed after a swarm of bees kept crews from rolling the plane back from the gate.

According to The Associated Press, US Airways spokesman Davien Anderson said Flight 2690 to Indianapolis had boarded and was ready for departure from Charlotte Douglas International Airport. That's when Anderson says a worker approached the back of the plane to get it ready to leave the gate and noticed the bees. The worker was unable to properly prepare the flight for takeoff for fear of being stung.

Eventually a beekeeper captured the bees. None of the bees got inside the cabin, and no injuries were reported.
