Since January, the base experienced three bird air strikes to aircraft, including damage to a T-38C, a KC-135R and most recently, an F-117 during the air show. Annually, the Air Force experiences an average of $34 million in damages from bird strikes. The Air Force also loses, on average, one aircraft per year due to the strikes. Undated file photo.

Another reason why we can't accept socialized medicine. These commies will "conquer" SARs ONLY AFTER we figure out what to do. Then they will take credit for it.

Ya gotta remember, Colombia is near the equator, so it's always cold there. [;D]

I doubt it ever gets cold in Columbia, they must be at higher altitudes in the mountains.

Ever notice snow on mountaintops year round? Did you think it was warm weather snow? It gets cold at altitude summer or winter, sometimes bitterly so. BTW, for the guy who said Columbia is in the southern hemisphere, go look at a map.

Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner. They are a new unit that was recently formed for the purpose of fighting anti-government rebels who have been operating out of mountain strongholds. But then again, that's what is said in the caption.

Sorry, I don't have a link but I'm guessing if you "Google" the singer's name, you could find something pretty quick.

Let's see at least $34 MILLION in damage to planes annually vs. $100 worth of shotgun shells.......................... I suppose the birds are somehow Federally protected........[rolleyes]
