Ants Prevent Plane Takeoff

This is a story which caused concern, considering that this weekend my wife will be taking off from Kolkata airport to return home. Burrowing ants caused the rear wheels of a plane to collapse through the tarmac on the taxi strip at Kolkata.

This sounds rather comic, but it could have easily been the runway. This is one story which I won't be emailing Monica with to keep her up to date.
