Bird Strikes Up 10% at Nation's Airports

The only consolation (at least for me) is that my home airport, JFK, saw 38% fewer strikes.


Bird Strikes Up 10% at Nation’s Airports in 2012

Quote:
Bird strikes and wildlife collisions at the nation’s ten busiest airports in 2012 were up by over 10% compared to 2011. For the first nine months of 2012, these airports experienced 1,416 incidents, compared to 1,282 for the same period in 2011.

Frequent Business Traveler reviewed data from the Federal Aviation Administration Wildlife Strike Database for the nation’s ten busiest airports and found that wildlife strikes were up at seven out of ten airports...

They need to get more birds of prey on the prowl at airports.
