Woman Tosses Coin into Plane's Engine for Good Luck

In Shanghai on Tuesday, an 80-year-old Buddhist woman named Qui tossed  several coins toward the engine of an Airbus 320 while boarding the  plane to “wish a safe flight,” according to Shanghai Daily. The  China Southern Airlines flight did take off safely, but only after a  five-hour delay which saw maintenance workers diligently retrieving  those coins, which can cause engine failure. Ultimately, they discovered  that one landed inside the engine, with eight more landing nearby.
