This time it was in Mississippi near the Gulf Coast when birds of an unidentified feather struck a U.S. Airways plane just before it took off, according to NBC New York. A member of the network's news team said the pilot "slammed on the brakes and the plane just stopped" before it went airborne. The plane — one of the first flights to leave the region since Hurricane Isaac forced planes to ground — was delayed several hours. The fate of the birds is undetermined. But they're mobilizing.
