In 1971 Bird-Aircraft collisions damaged or destroyed 383 Air Force Aircraft and inflicted serious injuries on several pilots. More bird-strikes occur during takeoff and landing than any other phase of flight. This fact underscores the need for bird control in the immediate vicinity of the airfield. Birds may be dispersed locally by any of a great number of means designed to elicit an escape response. Radar detection of birds may enable pilots to evade approaching flocks.
