Bird Strike

Canada Geese is another popular kind of bird in the country. And with regards to this class of bird, it has been reported that this Canadian geese was the caused of plane accident. A plane crash is exactly what happened to flight 1549 out of LaGuardia en route to South Carolina, when the plane endured a bird strike. Bird strike is when a plane flies into a flock of birds that gets sucked into the engines then gets shot out the other side. Larger birds, such as the Canada Geese that this plane hit, tend to foul the blades in the engine fan, and then the engine goes out. Both engines on this flight stopped, and the plane was steered magnificently by the pilot into a gradual descent and a soft water landing. There were no fatalities whatsoever, and all passengers were recovered without serious injury. If you want to know more, fly on over to the payday loan blog at
