That look on the cat’s face? That’s not terror, it’s pure and unbridled anger. Sorry, other people in this video who forgot to check for a cat before taking off: This cat is going to murder you in your sleep.

The above video, which has taken the internet by storm, was shot during a lesson at a French flying school. Unfortunately, the pilot (on his first flight!) didn’t check to make sure no one was sleeping in or on the wings of the small plane, so by the time the cat figured out it was on a moving vehicle ready to defy gravity, it was already a little too late. I feel bad for the cat (who is fine, by the way), but I also can’t help but laugh every time I see her adorable little head pop up from the wing. And considering how dangerous all of this was, it’s just really something to watch her just be so chill about it.
