FAA’s New Bird-Strike Plan

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 16:47

It’s called hide the statistics.

The federal government plans to block public access to its records of aircraft and bird collisions such as the one that forced a US Airways jet to splashdown in New York’s Hudson River in January.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says that the information could mislead the public and its release could prompt some airports and others not to report incidents, but the proposal is drawing sharp criticism from bird safety experts and public records advocates.

I guess the theory is that no aircraft has ever collided with an ostrich that had its head in the sand.
