So what can we learn from this?
Is there anything that can be done at airports to deter birds from the immediate vicinity?
Helium balloon dummies of birds of prey tied along the boundary fence (to the side of the runway obviously)?
Dedicated radar detectors at every airport along the glide and climb slopes?
Obviously once the aircraft has climbed out a bit, its not feasible to deter*, but having birds kill both engines with the aircraft still within the airport's boundaries is a bit concerning.
*however at that point, at least the pilot should have a bit of altitude to play with.
it is clear an issue with ornithology service in ZIA.
its not so long become civilian airport with still just a dozen or two flights per day (but big plans)
and some issues with responsibility chain as test facility.
its less likely to happens in SVO or DME because bird protection service doing well there.
media war who is responsible already started, i expect more dirty PR.
they even try to start against junkyards close to ZIA where those birds feed on. (i dont believe in good results, junkyards is a painy issue near Moscow)
also, i interested what this bird is
