The 20 weirdest things ever left on a plane

If you're still crying over the Game Boy you left on board your flight to Orlando in the early '90s, imagine the guys who've hobbled off planes without their prosthetic limbs, wandered away with a cool breeze tickling their (now) bald heads, or departed unaware that their pet parrot is no longer, well, parroting everything the pilot says. Basically, people have left behind some really, really weird stuff.

And to find out how weird, Skyscanner recently surveyed over 700 flight attendants from 83 countries. Here are 20 of the most outrageous items they reported ever finding on board.

A parrot.

A bag of diamonds.

A box of dried fish.

A bag of onions.

A falcon.

A prosthetic leg.

A double bass.

A wig.

A glass eye.

One clog.

One frog.


A toupee.

A handwritten marriage proposal.


A wedding dress.


A bag of sand.

One egg, sans packaging or shell.
