Are we heading towards a war?:)

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 11, 2011:
I agree with earlier commenter; photog should give some explanation, what kind of birds, anything.
Having said that, it's a wonderful catch!

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Fri August 12, 2011:
Angry birds attacking green pigs inside plane !

Birds...the original aviators!

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 14, 2011:
First......yes, it's a very dramatic photograph.

However, here's what I find "lacking"; guy takes great photo, posts it with absolutely now explanation, comments, whatever. In a case like this, I think the screeners should have insisted on some explanation.

One-too many birds!

How Bird can You Count? Great!*****

A visitor from Canada posted Fri April 9, 2010:
Please, just tell me that this is the effect from a zoom ! If not, the authorities at this airport should just be fired to let an aircraft take off or land in such conditions ! It looks insane to my untrained eyes !
