A flock of starlings fly straight into the path of a Boeing airliner as it lifts off at 200mph

Gosh…

‘It was like a scene from the Hitchcock movie The Birds. One second all was clear, and the next thing you saw were these birds swarming over the plane,’ said an onlooker.

Flight into danger - A flock of starlings fly straight into the path of the Boeing airliner as it lifts off at 200mph

 

I don’t think the starlings have been blogging about the incident, but I recognise this to be pretty tragic. I’d like to quote a comment by a vegan sharing the same opinion who was told to chill out:

“Just, FYI, you’re telling a vegan to chill about the needless slaughter of a couple hundred innocent birds by a fuel-guzzling monstrosity. Don’t push my buttons, jerk.” [Gizmodo]

Nicely put. The controversy being; better 200 dead birds than 80 passengers.
