So since the event happened BEFORE the USAirways A320 I noticed there was no mention of the jetBlue A320 that hit a flock of birds while landing at JFK a month or so back. The aircraft received extensive structural damage....don't know how bad the engines took it.

I saw this yesterday on the local news, I guess we are going to see a lot of "Breaking News" stories for anything related to bird strikes over the next few weeks. The same sort of thing happened after the B6 incident at LAX as well. I did wonder how long it would be before we started seeing similar stories pop up.
Gotta love the media and their sensationalist reporting!
