Kitten finds way into cockpit of jet at Hickory Aviation Museum

HICKORY, N.C. — The Hickory Aviation Museum had a pleasant surprise last week when it found kittens had been born in one of its jets.

On Facebook, the museum said a cat who roams the area had kittens. One of those kittens even climbed into the cockpit of a T-33 Shooting Star jet.

The Hickory Daily Record reported the kittens are now at a local humane society and will be up for adoption within three months.
