Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!

Today we’ll be looking at bird strikes and bird strike prevention. A bird strike-sometimes called birdstrike, bird ingestion (for an engine), bird hit, or bird aircraft strike hazard (BASH)-is a collision between an airborne animal (usually a bird or bat) and a moving vehicle, usually an aircraft. The term is also used for bird deaths resulting from collisions with structures such as power lines, towers and wind turbines (see Bird-skyscraper collisions and Towerkill).
Bird strikes are a significant threat to flight safety, and have caused a number of accidents with human casualties. There are over 13,000 bird strikes annually in the US alone. However, the number of major accidents involving civil aircraft is quite low and it has been estimated that there is only about 1 accident resulting in human death in one billion flying hours. The majority of bird strikes (65%) cause little damage to the aircraft; however the collision is usually fatal to the bird(s) involved.
Particularly, the Canada goose has been ranked as the third most hazardous wildlife species to aircraft with approximately 240 goose-aircraft collisions in the United States each year. 80% of all bird strikes go unreported.
Most accidents occur when a bird (or birds) collides with the windscreen or is sucked into the engine of jet aircraft. These cause annual damages that have been estimated at $400 million within the United States alone and up to $1.2 billion to commercial aircraft worldwide. In addition to property damage, collisions between man-made structures and conveyances and birds is a contributing factor, among many others, to the worldwide decline of many avian species.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) received 65,139 bird strike reports for 2011-14, and the Federal Aviation Authority counted 177,269 wildlife strike reports on civil aircraft between 1990 and 2015, growing 38% in seven years from 2009 to 2015. Birds accounted for 97%.

  • When birds do hit i believe that ring on outer edges that connects fan blades could make blades more robust and prevent them from braking into the engine. Bird parts rarely do damage inside compressor, but titanium blade does serious damage + engine is out of balance and starts vibrating.

  • I have seen birds on the Airfield, a plane comes into land and they just sit there, they go into the air when the reverse thrusters come on. However they are back on the ground in no time, then a bird scarer comes out just before another plane comes into land and sets off a flare to scare them into the air, just as a plane is coming in!!! It is birds flying across the runway that is more of a danger, they fly across at just the wrong height for a plane anding or taking off under full power.

  • Thanks Captain, Many times we experience wings flipping or wobbling on runways or during turbulence. How risky is that? Also which plane has more flexible wings? Why this movement of wings is more in jet planes than propeller planes - as per my observation... Request your comments please.

  • I really like your videos Captain. Your explanation always in depth and easy to understand and you mentioned about the color of the airplanes remind me of something. Airline should stop cleaning their planes or make it shiny because that attracted birds to fly toward the planes to have a chance to take a dump on it. Happens to my car all the time, the moment I clean my car and of all the cars in the parking lot, mine get poop on!!! Birds love to poop on shiny stuffs I guess.

  • I took a discovery flight a couple of years ago, and there were birds by the runway. The flight instructor turned on the landing lights so the birds could see us coming, and mentioned that you should always fly above them as they almost always dive to avoid you. Perhaps big bright lights on the nose would help.

  • As pilots, there is nothing you can do about bird strikes. The point when bird strikes get critical, i.e high speed RTO, is so far down the runway that you can’t see the birds at the point of commencing the take off roll.

  • umm sorry but can you put back the planes which were before in the background

  • we’ve had a bird strike last month, we didn’t notice anything, after landing we’ve found the marks, blood and birds debris on the right engine, the mechanics checked it out, cleaned it and they left 3 blades with dints in them saying all parameters checked OK, after that the airplane flew uneventfully, but starting to develop vibration increases records on the right engine, last was 3.8 on takeoff power, the airplane then deemed unsafe to fly and has been grounded until the blades have been changed and a realignment was made before we took it back to the skies. This was a Boeing able to chew on the bird/s and kept flying for almost a week before the engine started to approach unsafe level of vibrations.

  • Hey Joe, the US Air Force had a similar problem with birds on the islands of Guam & Midway. Too many birds too close to the active runway. What to do ?? Well, paving over the entire airfield was the solution. They didn't have to make the tarmac thick, just a few inches did the trick. Maybe this is why London City Airport is relatively bird free ?? IDK, but a few inches of asphalt might just be what airports need.

  • Bird control, e.g., avoiding airport locations proximity to bird habitat, noise, predators, etc. seem much too indirect, inefficient, ineffective to guarantee airline safety as bird AND human flying populations exponentially increase with NO ONE daring to mention complete bird population control methods, systemic regional extinction of certain species, and the ecological. economic and political barriers to such a TOTAL solution. I think nothing works to the degrees required because we're aiming solutions at the birds, something we can't really control or change easily, instead of what is our STRENGTH in the challenge. That single human advantage is in FAST aeronautical and aviation technological change, specifically, in this case, develop temporary engine air intake ducting that essentially seal normal head-on air induction and draw all required air from suitibly engineered air intakes on top of the wings just until above bird flight altitude or upon judgement of reaching safe airspace upon which the direct main ducts can be reopened and normal operation continue until approaching landing at another bird-threatened airport. 100% problem solved, birds or no birds AND by drawing air above the wing just right MAY EVEN be an additional source of corresponding lift itself at critical takeoff and landing approaches!
