One Australian pilot “had it with these mother f***ing snakes” on his mother effin’ flight from Darwin Airport to Peppimenarti when he had to land early due to an unexpected visitor.

According to Australia’s ABC News, pilot Braden Blennerhassett made a Samuel L. Jackson-like call, as seen in the movie “Snakes on a Plane,” when he saw a snake out of the corner of his eye.

“Look, you’re not going to believe this,” he said, “[But] I’ve got snakes on a plane.”

Blennerhassett said that his staff was skeptical at first, but when he started requesting help to rid the plane of the snake they began to take him seriously.

He landed the plane back at Darwin so snake-catchers could scope out the slithering passenger.

Air Frontier director Geoffrey Hunt said the snake has not been found and “we won’t be using [the plane] until we’re comfortable the snake is not onboard anymore.”
