Incident at MEDICINE HAT AB (CYXH)

Summary

2001-09-07: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that they contacted the airport manager, who reported that the King Air hit the bird during climb-out, quite far from the airport. The bird activity has decreased substantially at the airport due to aggressive bird control methods.
2001-09-13: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that after take-off from YXH, the aircraft struck a duck on the upper right side of the radome. The aircraft returned to YXH without incident. The radome was damaged from the impact (honeycomb was spongy but no missing material). The radome was removed and the underlying structure inspected with no faults found. Visual inspection of the rest of the aircraft externally showed no evidence of any further impacts. The radome was replaced and the aircraft returned to service. The flight crew will be filling out the appropriate reports regarding this incident.
2001-09-04: BXH 454, a Beech King Air, struck a bird during takeoff from Medicine Hat. The crew elected to return to the airport to inspect the a/c. No ERS was required and the flight landed safely.
