Bird hits one of major causes of aircraft accidents: IAF

Jammu, May 20, 2013, (PTI):

Attributing bird hits as one of the major causes of aircraft mishaps, the Indian Airforce (IAF) today asked people not to throw waste in open, which attracts the avian population.

"Birds strike is one of the major causes of aircraft accidents. People should not throw waste in open and keep their surroundings clean, so that the birds are not attracted," Wing Commander Amit Singh Gaharwar said at an Aerospace Safety Awareness campaign organised at Chari Saail village in Udhampur district today.

The campaign was aimed at educating the villagers towards cleanliness and hygiene which in turn will help reduce the risk of bird strike to flying aircrafts.

"This not only helps safe flying but will also create a healthy environment of living," Gaharwar added.
