Interesting coincidence of events.....hope a solution comes out of this near disaster.


That picture from the Ferihegy Airport is astounding, and ascribes a visual corroboration to this whole concept of "bird strikes."

I live near the Hudson River, and went out that afternoon to see the jet, with it's dozens of attendant rescue boats, go floating past. As the phrase "bird strike" went through the crowd, people began to look up uneasily, as if the impending beast in a horror film was lurking right around the corner.

Not the best press for bird lovers...
