It’s amazing that catastrophic bird strikes don’t happen more often. I know most major airports employ various forms of anti-bird action, but birds are, like, everywhere. Anyways, here’s a Ural Airlines Airbus 321 belly down in a field.
Everybody walked away. Take a gander at this map.
So many different bad ways this could have gone. So many areas of concrete to avoid. Less than a mile down from the runway, mere seconds to act. Fortunately, there was a nice smooth cornfield to set down in.
Even so, this is an insane feat. These pilots deserve every bit of credit they’ll get.
