  • Helicopter v. Geese Strike

    As some of you are aware, two of my sons fly helicopters. Jared flies an A-Star out to the oil platforms in the Gulf so when I found these pictures of what happens when an A-Star runs into a flock of geese I sent him the pictures. He was amazed at the damage and will now have a better appreciation of bird watching.

              What's the estimated speed of the Helicopter when this happened?

                The article does not say the speed at impact but the Helicopter will cruise at 160 mph. My son said the only way it could have happened is the guy was not paying attention to what was around him. The pictures are not from the article, they are from a guy I know who is stationed on a platform in Africa. The pilot is his buddy and he was flying a patient to a hospital in Memphis and sent the photos to him. Both of my sons belong to message boards who share crash information and these pictures had not hit those yet.

                  If the pilot and co-pilot are unscathed I'm surprised.I could easily see them getting jacked big time.

                    Apparently the pilot sustained facial injuries.

                      We can look to the water landing in the Hudson last week to see what a flock of geese can do to even pretty big planes.

                        I think this is a sexists thread. How do we know there weren't ganders? Just you wait until some feminists come across the Ridgid Forum

                          Isn't it obvious, what would a self-respecting gander be doing at XXX Adult World?

                            Back in 1995 the Air Force lost a jet with 24-men on it while it was taking off at Elmendorf Air Force Base due to a flock of geese. If you have ever been around an airport in Anchorage you heard the "air cannons" being fired every few minutes to scare the geese off.
