Airplane Anti-Bird Device

Published March 2009

In January, 2009, A US Airways plane crashed into the Hudson River shortly after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport, New York.

The airplane lost power in its engines when it flew through a flock of geese almost immediately after leaving the airport. Investigators found evidence of soft-body impact on the engine blades and a single feather was discovered on the wing flap.

In the wake of this incident, the Federal Aviation Authority is implementing new compulsory anti-bird measures for all airliners.
