Bird Strike!

Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Bird strikes are bad news in the aviation business.  I've had one crack a windscreen while doing a low level flight over Italy and also had squadronmates ingest birds in the engines.  Not fun.  Certainly no day in the park for the birds either.

These pictures give a whole new meaning to the term bird strike though:


A little revenge for our feathered friends.  Tough day for this unmanned aerial vehicle or UAV.  Reminds me of one time when I was fishing.  I was working the "walk the dog" technique with a Zara Spook lure and a hawk comes swooping down and scoops up my lure off the top of the water.  He flies about 30 feet in the air before he realizes what he has in his talons is not edible.  He releases the lure.  Glad he didn't get caught by the treble hooks.  

Hope you're enjoying this awesome spring weather.  Great for flying and fishing.  Until next time...




I am writing because we are looking for a nice photo of a Drone with birds for using it for an article about the use of the airspace.
I would like to ask you if we can use one of the pictures you presented in this bolg. Do you have in in high definition?

Thank you in advance,
