They were arriving in New York from Florida.  They were originally bound for LaGuardia.  Why'd they divert to JFK?  That seems silly.

Doesn't seem right that some birds could put a dent that big in an airplane's metal nose cone.

Someone ring up the Loose Change boys.

Well, it's The Daily Fail, so now we know neither airplanes nor birds exist.

Goddamn, did they hit a roc?

It's not that strong. Someone else will probably explain it better than me. But it houses equipment. Maybe radar? Sorry can't remember but there's a reason the nose cones on planes are flimsy.

It's not metal. It's plastic and paint, because it's a radome cover for the plane's Airborne Weather Radar.

They're made to crumple like that. It prevents impact stress from force transference or something. (Not an engineer)

ah, yeah, thats right. If it was metal it would mess with the radar.

JFK is a Delta hub, so they probably have better maintenance facilities there.

They should have defrosted the bird first

Reminded me when I worked in a KC-130 hangar and an unlucky soul got to paint the nose red for the kids' annual Santa drop. Turns out it had lead and it interfered with some avionics. Everybody was okay.

Why not? Have you ever been to LaGuardia?

I'm not seeing any blood or feathers.  Did they already wash it off, or did the wind sheer do it for them?

It was actually hail. No joke.

Damn birds: Airline executives just realized they can fit fifteen more seats up there, and apologize if the next once in a blue moon bird strike reduces knee space.

It's just a little bit closer, which matters if you think you need to get on the ground RIGHT NOW, along with an approach over water if landing to the north or west.  Also, most of the runways at JFK are longer (up to 2x) and wider.

And it's possible that Delta has maintenance and repair facilities at JFK that they don't at LGA.

Since it was actually hail, not a bird, imagine what a few dozen grain-of-sand micrometeoroids would do at .001c

Because they were waiting to land and when they called a mayday JFK was clear and LGA wasn't, would be my guess.

That bird is still alive, and it's pissed.

Thank you.

There is no level of clickbait attraction that would make me click on a Fail link.

Reminds me of a train I saw that had hit a cow on the track.

Well the only other bird up there was a seagull with prison tattoos, so the crew had to choose between a roc and a hard-case...

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a goose, those things are bowling balls with wings.

Yeah, but you should see what the other guy looks like!

Not a bird strike. It's hail damage.
 
2020-07-08 11:19:23 AM  
Edd China can just spot weld some keys to that and pop the dent out.  A pea of hardener to a golfball of filler.  A lick of paint and you can't say fairer than that.
