SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA — A Horizon Air flight was delayed due to a pelican blocking the taxiway at San Diego International Airport last week on Thursday.

Aviation news reporter Malik Earnest's video footage shows the moment the unexpected visitor blocked a Horizon Airlines flight and refused to leave the runway.

The pilot can be heard on air traffic control saying, “Sir, you’re not going to believe this, but we are unable because of a pelican sitting here on the taxiway. He’s not moving.”
