Over the course of ten days in mid-April 2012, there were several serious incidents involving birds colliding into planes across the US (including a strike described in an earlier AirSafeNews.com story on a passenger who recorded a bird strike with an iPad). While no one was harmed in these strike events, these incidents brought renewed attention to this ongoing aviation concern.
The two videos below incude the report broadcast by Columbia News Tonight, as well as additional comments from Dr. Curtis.
