Geese are Major Danger at Amsterdam Airport

Flocks of geese searching for food have become an increasing danger for planes at Amsterdam Airport. The chance of potentially life-threatening collisions has increased greatly in recent years. This was reported in an internal document of the airport and the Inspectorate for Transport and Waterways. The chairman of the International Bird Strike Committee Luit Buurma said that birds are hit daily by planes. Their bodies then just lie next to the landing strip.
