As far as “no injuries reported,” I’m pretty sure you’d get a different opinion from the bird!

No, you likely won’t get an opinion from the bird, unless you get the 3 sisters from “Charmed” to help you talk to its dead spirit… :smiling_imp:
Good thing it was the cowling tho, and not in the fan.

“Good thing it was the cowling tho, and not in the fan.”

I doubt the bird cares…


#4

And based on the the fact it was a mid air collision, even the bird wouldn’t have met the definition of an injury.

I’d suspect it would have been chalked up as a fatality unless somehow some way, that bird survived that impact, which I honestly cannot conceive.

Mmmmmmm. I love that show…

Can’t imagine why…

Shouldn’t PA be in here in an uproar against a slight to his family?
