Foreign object damage (FOD) is for the birds. Is anyone flying this weekend? Watching Funker530 videos while waiting at the terminal for your flight? Here’s a compilation video of various instances where birds and aircraft collide. Sometimes they harmlessly bounce off. Other times… not so much. I just got back from a week and a half in Canada where I was mobbing around in little single engine puddle jumpers while sharing the sky with immense flocks of migratory birds. I was getting a bit worried this would be my fate.
