So What You Will About Your Local Airport, At Least You Don’t Have a Jackal Problem

Pilots flying out of Calcutta’s Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport have run into a bit of an issue lately:  jackals on the runway.  Yes, jackals.  Not really an issue at LaGuardia, but a growing problem in Calcutta.  While you may complain about expensive parking at O’Hare or a lack of wireless access at your local terminal, at least you’ve never heard a pilot say, "Birds and jackals are the main problem," which is what has been said about the airport in Calcutta.  I don’t know why I find the idea of jackals so funny, but I do.  And so should you.
