    MSNBC: Lighting may reduce airplane-bird collisions

    I thought this was pretty interesting - I imagine mounting lights that could "deflect" possible birds in the range of an a/c would be a relatively inexpensive means of protecting both the birds and the passengers. I did not know 219 pax died due to wildlife striking planes...
