AN EVALUATION OF THE BIRD/AIRCRAFT STRIKE HAZARD (BASH) AT TEST AREA C-62, EGLIN AFB, FL

The bird/aircraft strike hazard (BASH) at Eglin Bombing Range Test Area (TA) C-62 was surveyed periodically from 23 March 1977 to 30 March 1978. Turkey Vultures (Cathartes aura), Black Vultures (Coragyps atratus), and Cattle Egrets (Bubulcus ibis) were found to create the major bird hazard at TA C-62. Recommendations aimed at reducing the range bird strike potential are included in this report. (Author)
