Guangxi Beibu Gulf Airlines was forced to cancel a flight after a man threw six coins into the plane’s engine for good luck. Fortunately, the airport workers noticed coins on the floor under the engine in a pre-takeoff inspection. Around 150 passengers were escorted off flight GX8814 from Weifang to Haikou, in the Chinese provinces of Shandong and Hainan, for further inspection as well as their safety.

In Chinese culture both red paper and coins are symbols of good luck, so it’s no surprise that this isn’t the first time the stunt has happened. That’s right, back in January 2020, another person, who just so happened to be flying for the first time ever, also threw coins into a plane engine. A litt over 2-years-ago in February 2019, 28-year-old Lu Chao also threw coins into the plane engine while boarding a Lucky Air flight from Anqing to Kunming to wish for a safe journey.
