What is going on at SFB? Bird strike 2 days ago with that Thompson 767- We don't even see that kind of action at MCO (thank god)

Airport Ops in SFB is responsible for wildlife on the airport and at bigger airports (ORD) for example USDA actually has people there just for that reason. This is clearly a failure of the Airport Operations section in SFB. I worked at ORD in ops and we very rarely had birdstrikes to this magnitude

Clearly a failure? Come on. Like airport ops has "control" over every part of the airport's wildlife.  



Time to spare, go by air.

Even by the normal standards of media reporting this is sensationalist cr*p of the worst order. The passangers seem amazingly rational and composed compared to the interviewer. Perhaps the company should change its name to wtftv....

I honestly don't think it was that bad. Sure the interviewer was a bit enthusiastic compared to the interviewees, but nothing like the "the screaming passengers were petrified for their very lives as the pilot of the out of control Airbus MD-737 jetliner desperately tried to dump fuel in order to perform a crash landing" of some organizations. Overall it was an average video and the article was above average because it just stated the facts like a good news article should.
