Bird strike while landing at ORD
« on: May 02, 2012, 11:18:40 PM »
Hi All,
  I'm new to the forum but I'm a big fan of the site and these interesting recordings.  I was monitoring the ORD tower feed this morning and heard United 556 report a bird strike during its landing flare.  This clip captures the reporting of the incident and the subsequent go arounds after the tower closed the runway.  Enjoy!

Also if anyone is up for an interesting feed listen to the Chicago tower and approach from tonight starting at ~7pm CST.  Microbursts detected at the end of the runway and multiple flights diverting to Wisconsin as a result of the storm.  We had some pretty big hail on the ground so I can't imagine it was fun to fly through.
