ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Federal investigators still haven't removed that U.S. Airways jetliner from the Hudson River.
A suspected bird strike forced the plane down in the middle of the river. Aviation officials in southwest Georgia say they sometimes struggle with troublesome birds and other wildlife.
Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Director Yvette Aehle says during the fall, a flock of Canada geese frequent Albany's airport and often have to be chased away with trucks or sirens. Deer and coyotes cause bigger problems. Crews had to shoot a coyote earlier this week after it wandered onto airport property.
"We have the United States Department of Agriculture that's involved with us that help us harvest the deer during certain times of the year if we see activity then we have to remove them because obviously an airplane that's taking off or landing and hits a deer that obviously complicates things and translate into loss of life," said Yvette Aehle, Southwest Regional Airport Director.
Aehle said at one point a dead deer was found at the end of a runway, with propeller marks on it. There were been five bird strikes involving planes in Georgia from 1990 to 2007, but none in our viewing area.
