Aside to the whole “Miracle on the Hudson”:
My eldest brother worked for a few years at the GE aircraft engines plant in Cincinnati. He told us the way the engines were tested for possible bird impact.
A guy would stand in the test tunnel with a barrel of the largest frozen turkeys you could imagine. They rev up the engines and he catapults the turkeys into the engines. Molecularized turkey.
Verily, verily I say unto you…someone gets paid to do that!
No word yet if the Airbus involved had GE engines….
