None of the crew were injured during this accident (luckily) although the aircraft had to perform an emergency landing at the nearest runway where the damage was inspected and the birds next of kin were informed.

No worms tonight for this birds offspring Sad

We actually gather the remains of birds that we strike and they are sent to the Smithsonian to be identified.

They take the (Slurge as it's called) and track what type of birds, where, what altitude, etc for the Air Forces program to avoid the strikes.

It works well, I've only hit about 10 in the last two years....

That is a fake picture and it isnt even realistic the picture is cleary a cartoon eagle, look at the BLACK LINE around the eagles head.
Anyway the background looks real and the background gore looks fairly real to but the eagle and the mian gore are obviously a complete fake.
You ruined a perfectly good picture!

As for the damage caused by birdstrikes i reccomend you look at this picture, http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=721157&WxsIERv=Obrvat%20737-406&Wm=0&WdsYXMg=XYZ%20-%20Eblny%20Qhgpu%20Nveyvarf&QtODMg=Nzfgreqnz%20-%20Fpuvcuby%20%28NZF%20%2F%20RUNZ%29&ERDLTkt=Argureynaqf&ktODMp=Abirzore%2024%2C%202004&BP=1&WNEb25u=ZFS&xsIERvdWdsY=CU-OQG&MgTUQtODMgKE=Guvf%20737%20jnf%20vaibyirq%20va%20n%20oveqfgevxr.%20Vg%20unq%20fb%20zhpu%20qnzntr%20gung%20gurl%20unq%20gb%20ercynpr%20gur%20obqljbex.%20N%20ybg%20bs%20jbex%20nf%20lbh%20pna%20frr.%20Abgvpr%20gung%20gur%20yrsg%20sebag%20pbpxcvg%20jvaqbj%20vf%20erzbirq.%20%5BFbal%20S828%5D&YXMgTUQtODMgKERD=5376&NEb25uZWxs=2004-11-28%2000%3A00%3A00&ODJ9dvCE=&O89Dcjdg=24530%2F1772&static=yes&width=1024&height=780&sok=JURER%20%20%28ZNGPU%20%28nvepensg%2Cnveyvar%2Ccynpr%2Ccubgb_qngr%2Cpbhagel%2Cerznex%2Ccubgbtencure%2Crznvy%2Clrne%2Cert%2Cnvepensg_trarevp%2Cpa%2Cpbqr%29%20NTNVAFG%20%28%27%2B%22oveqfgevxr%22%27%20VA%20OBBYRNA%20ZBQR%29%29%20%20beqre%20ol%20cubgb_vq%20QRFP&photo_nr=18&prev_id=759758&next_id=712323

clearly you need to have your eyes looked at because the only "black lines" I see are its shadow. Its real.

Its not real. A bird flies with its head in front of it right? The head would be the first to hit the glass so obviousily it would be the most "damaged" part of the bird. The head is in perfect condition in this photo; its a fake.

ahh but if you're running down the road as human, or any animal for that matter and you know you are gonna hit somthing head on, as a matter of instinct you turn your head away from the danger, to the left or to the right, just as the afore mentioned eagle did prior to his collision with a C130 Hercules, had it been a collison with a pigeon or a smaller winged object or animal he may have had his head in the forward postion and his beak wide open, but on this occasion, the afore mentioned feathered hunter realised his future and thus..."closed his beak, moved his head to the left and probobly closed his eyes for a few seconds and tried to blank out the imminent thought of his destiny" of that to meet with a bigger bird than he, and to hang up his feathers and join his maker, but to remain in the sky nevertheless!!!

Whistle

PS:- I only posted this picture origionally as a matter on interest, i think its great that its caused such a debate!!! Thumbs Up!, by the way if anyone is interested the American C130 has since been repaired and is back in service. Wink
