Another Birdstrike- Air Force Two

Fri Apr 20, 2012 11:22 pm

Air Force Two encountered a bird strike incident last night while approaching Santa Barbara, CA. The Vice President continued his travels on Friday in an alternate aircraft (C-20/Gulfstream 3) while the original aircraft was being inspected.

Is this the 2nd 757 to hit birds this week? At least in this case they were already on approach and AF2 normally gets priority anyway.
