A concerned airplane passenger asked me if I heard about bird strikes.

I honestly didn’t think they could carry signs.

Europeans have been testing aircraft engines against bird strikes for a long while, using a cannon which launched (deceased, obviously) chickens at the aeroplane.

Eventually, the Americans decided they needed to test their engines tbe same way. So they brought a device over and started testing. No matter how resilient they made the engines, they always failed. After months of testing, they gave up and sent for a European engineer to advise on what wad wrong.<...

I often hear of aircraft been taken out of action by bird strikes.

What I want to know is, what does their union even want?
