Bird strikes are an extremely hazardous problem that needs to be addressed. Bird strikes have been an all-too-common occurrence since the dawn of aviation and are an ever increasing threat to aviation safety. Birds can become injected into the plane’s engines causing the plane to lose power resulting in forced landings and expensive repairs. This threat is demonstrated by the “miracle on the Hudson” in which Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger guided an Airbus A320 into an emergency unpowered water landing into the Hudson river after the plane struck a flock of Canadian Geese during its initial climb.
