  1. Please tell me what the point of placing a photo of a “potentially unrelated” damaged plane was to this article other than sesationalism? Why is it “potentially unrelated”? Is this the plane or not?

  2. Hi Mac / Jayson – Updated as these pictures have now been confirmed to be the plane from the airport. The original report showed the pictures but said they could not confirm the extent of the damage.

  3. Hey Mac, how about an apology for shooting your mouth off. What is sesationalism anyways?

    That must have been some bird!

  4. it looks has more than a bird hit that plane. i have a video of a flying object taken on security camera at my home it looks as though it would be a good fit to the hole in the nose of that aircraft.
    its a pity that i couldn’t attach it to this message.
    cheers! john porter.
