Damage From April AA 763 Birdstrikes

Thu Nov 29, 2001 6:57 am

Woah, look here http://aviation-safety.net/pictures/incidents/20010402-0.html. The damage looks pretty bad! Congrats to the pilots who obviously must have had a hard time getting the 763 down.

what the heck kind of birds were those?
Did it actually puncture into the cockpit there?
What kind of price tag did the damage come to?

Wow! Those shots are amazing! The damage is extensive and unbelievable! I wonder what the people in the plane might have felt or heard when the birds struck? What would have happened if they had run into a whole flock of big, heavy birds such as Canada geese? Canada's have been spotted by commercial aviation pilots at altitudes as high as 29,000 feet.

I saw this one in Paris. I saw it push back, then come back a while later. I was in the CX 744 parked behind the AA 763, but we seem to be obscured from every photo!!

It was a little scary actually, because we had to take off from the same runway less than an hour after that!
