Wishing Wells, YES! Plane engines, NO! Earlier this week, a 66-year old woman was detained by police for throwing coins at a plane for good luck & "safe flight" before departure from Hohhot Baita International Airport in Mongolia (China).

A crew member saw the woman tossing coins from the stairway and alerted security who dispatched members to stop the woman and look for the six 1 Jiao coins. Luckily none went into the engine. Following a two-hour delay, all 100 passengers took off on a replacement aircraft.

The lady, who is identified by her surname, Yang, was detained by police and could face further punishments and charges. No report on if the crew members got to keep the loose change.
