    Wow! What a mess! They were fortunate that the plane didn’t sustain much more serious damage.

    I imagine it's gotta stink to high heavens by now too. :eek:. Smart pilots for not turning the wipers on! There's other pics showing what the runway and surroundings look like after but I can't copy and paste em, ingested into the intakes, chopped bird's nest soup all over, Think he nailed whole flock.
