I was up at the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Park here a couple years ago, and was taking photos of the planes passing overhead. Caught the first one with two turkey vultures around the plane. Had sent it to my husband, who passed it on to someone else. I got a request back through him for the full size version to use for safety briefings.

Second shot I took at the air show this year, large flock of birds popped up around the inbound Delta that I was practicing my panning with.

Of course the airways become more challenging in the spring and fall in Central Texas with all the bird migrations.

I can still remember the first time a vulture dove to miss me in a 172...

I thought sure we'd just missed another plane. Very un-nerving.

David, welcome!

And what is the plane in #4? It looks rather like a Brewster Buffalo, but...

Terrific first post David - welcome.

Nothing exotic here. Just a 21 year old MD-11 on final into KPHX. Thank goodness for the clouds

Back in 2006, Dan Martin got several bird strikes while giving a ride in his P-51. Here's a take-off and landing pic of the flight.



Birds hit on the spinner, the nose and along the leading edge of the wing, especially the left side leaving a small dent.

Re: Bird Strikes.

This is from Thunder over Michigan last year. I have seen this many times during the shows there. The engine sounds spook them and they rise in a flock. I have not seen any hit the planes but it has to give you a little scare.

Hi Steve, hopefully David doesn't mind me answering for him. It's a CA-13 Boomerang. The Boomerang was designed and built in Australia by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation between 1942 and 1945, at the time the RAF demand was out stripping supply of British types so Australia had to find a solution for its lack of fighter types..

The Boomerang was faster than the Buffalo, and carrier much heavier armament with two 20mm cannons and four machine guns.

The aircraft in David's image is operated by the Temora Aviation Museum, and is one of only two still airworthy. There were 3 airworthy up until a few years ago when one was donated to a museum who have left it on static display ever since..

Also welcome David and great set of images, always good to see another aussie posting here....

All this bird strike talk reminded me of this image that i was shown a few years back.
RAAF F-111 crew came into contact with pelican while operating at low level.

I think a C172 is faster than the Buffalo...

Thanks for the ID!

Welcome David, great first round of shots from you

View out of the back office, not to be confused with the back alley of the building that Jim likes to hang out.

I was over at Alliance today running an errand and was just getting out of my truck when "whoa; that doesn't sound like a biz jet" and an F22 screams overhead outbound followed immediately after by an F16.
