Birdstrike! Engineers are removing the nose cone of this 737, which had been struck by a yellow-billed kite while on take-off from Durban. In the absence of abnormal indications the crew continued the flight to Port Elizabeth, where the aircraft landed safely. A postflight inspection revealed this large dent on the aircraft nose.

I can imagine the 737 saying...
"Hey! Hey! Would you like it if someone took off YOUR nose?"
Great shot of a beautiful elusive bird!

Still, I'm not 100% sure that was a very wise decision on their side...not after all the past worldwide experience...
