Incredible. Landed safely with an obstructed windshield, at least one pitot tube blocked, an a AoA sensor damaged, and one engine. Respect!
With one flamed out and a pitot and an AoA jammed like that, this could have been a master disaster if they had chosen a go around.. Glad it was VFR. Or maybe..
Captain Sully would be extremely proud! Well done by the pilots!
Glad they landed safely.
The dull red colour of the legs stuck to the fuselage sides suggest Purple Herons and not Cranes which have Black legs and the feather colours also suggest Purple Heron, and yes, they do fly in flocks.
With all due credit to Gary Larson, has anyone managed to find out the names of any of the deceased birds?
