Plane Talk // Science & Technology// Travel // June 30, 2017

AKA "Birds vs Planes"

In this episode we talk about bird strikes.

How much of a threat is a bird to a plane really? And what measures to airlines and airports take to try to avoid birds flying into planes?

Chaitan Jain, from IATA, looks at what happens when birds go up against planes in an episode we've decided to call 'Byebye Birdy'.
