Blinken’s Plane Buckles in Paris

Blinken's Aircraft Incident

In a bizarre turn of events that has left aviation experts baffled and satirists delighted, the empty plane of U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has reportedly fallen apart on the runway of Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport. The aircraft, which was awaiting Blinken’s return, spontaneously disassembled in what eyewitnesses are calling a “mechanical striptease.”

The incident occurred under the watchful eyes of the airport ground crew, who were initially confused by the sound of rivets popping and panels flapping in the wind. “It was like the plane decided to undress itself,” one bewildered worker reported, scratching his head.

French officials have launched an investigation into the peculiar disintegration, with theories ranging from metal fatigue to a rogue group of engineering students pulling off the ultimate prank. “We cannot rule out the possibility of an artistic statement,” stated the lead investigator, “Paris is, after all, the capital of avant-garde.”

Meanwhile, Secretary Blinken, who was at a diplomatic meeting in the city, took the news in stride. “I always knew diplomacy could be unpredictable,” he joked, “but I didn’t expect my plane to go full Houdini on me.”

As the story unfolds, the world eagerly awaits the results of the investigation. Will this turn out to be an unprecedented mechanical mystery, or just another day in the life of international diplomacy? One thing is for certain: the term ‘aircraft dismantling’ just got a whole new meaning.
