Passengers flying into Orlando International Airport were shocked to see a dinosaur on the tarmac.
An unidentified employee at the airport was dressed head-to-toe in an inflatable T-Rex costume as he signaled an airplane to its gate.
The video shows the tyrannosaurus waiving two batons and calmly guiding the airplane to its destination.
Colleagues looked on very amused and filmed the rare sight.

The dinosaur was seen wearing the aircraft marshaller uniform-a bright orange vest and waved two batons to signal the airplane to its gate
The job requires visual signalling between ground personnel and pilots in an airplane.
The T-Rex even wore the proper uniform- a bright orange safety vest that is visible to pilots.
And he certainly did the job well, as the Southwest commercial airplane rounded the corner and pulled right into the gate.

The amusing video was posted to Facebook and has been viewed more than 42,000 since it was posted on Monday.
Facebook users are already suggesting new characters to flag the planes down.
One commenter said the horrifying clown from Stephen King’s ‘IT’, should appear on the tarmac next.
Another said they would prefer Micky Mouse to welcome them to the home of Disney World.
