Nepal Airlines Workers Sacrifice Goat for Help with Maintenance

I’m not sure what’s more disturbing, this story or the fact the two separate people sent it to me (thanks, Sanj & IAHPHX):

Maintenance workers with Nepal Airlines sacrificed a goat to the Hindu sky god  (Akash Bhairab) after they struggled with some technical issues with one of their 757s.  Impressively, the plane is now running fine.

This is the second time in the past year or so that a maintenance team has sacrificed an animal for help repairing a plane:  you may remember the story of the Turkish airline workers who sacrificed a camel for similar reasons.
