50 ducks! That can do serious damage to a 737. This was a close one, but it is only a matter of time before some hotshot journalist takes the aviation industry to task over birdstrikes, and make the shocking revelation that they happen every day and very few even warrant reporting by the media.


Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

I can only imagine the heyday the said journalists would have to find that birds aren't the only flying debris that can raise an eyebrow when it hits an aircraft. Let's not forget "Salmon-Thirty-Salmon" when the AS 732 struck a fish on climbout from Juneau, dropped from an even more surprised Bald Eagle.  wink  I always chuckle at that story.

I read many years ago of a South African Air Force DC-3 that de-capitated a giraffe whilst flying at very low level. I can just imagine the poor giraffe lifting it's head up, 'Whats that noise....!!' thud......

I once read about a bald eagle that dropped a salmon into a AS 737 in JNU in the past I believe. I don't know if anyone could top that.

I'm sorry but someone has to ask the question?

Why didn't they 'duck' out of the way?

OK I'll close the door on my way out!
