It would depend on which way the birds were flying... into the plane the birds hit the plane, trying to fly away from the plane the jet hit the birds

They probably saw it.... OOOO shiny. Splat. What was the last thing that went through their minds as they hit the plane? Their tail feathers!......

This must have been an evil attempt to force the plane to land in a remote location so that the Bird Separatist faction can fill it with explosives and launch an attack on... something.

Prove that it wasn't, sheeple!

Maybe they were planning to use the plane to fly low and release their brothers imprisoned in zoos across the world. Carefully! ,carefully! Clip the top of the cage only! Opps..... Next

Are the birds on strike over low wages or benefits or what? Hope the bird union wins this one!
