MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - A passenger flight headed to New York City from Miami International Airport was delayed for hours, Monday afternoon, after bees were spotted on the outside of the plane.

A 7News viewer sent in a picture of the swarm on one of the wings of the American Airlines jet bound to John F. Kennedy Airport.

The airline called a beekeeper to get rid of the insects. Once the aircraft was bee free, crew members and passengers returned to the jet.

The flight finally took off at 5:18 p.m., more than four hours after its scheduled departure time.
