Incident at SAINT JOHN NB (CYSJ)
2003-04-03: A Falcon 50 CFKCI rolled for departure on Runway 32 in Saint John. The aircraft aborted take-off and reported a bird strike. The aircraft returned to the hangar for an inspection. No damage was found. An airport vehicle did a runway inspection and found one dead bird.
2003-04-22: Update - Saint John Airport - Aerodrome Safety - The bird which was struck was a Horned Lark which is common for this area but has not been a problem during the winter as snow and ice was covering their food source. Since the heavy rains grasses and seeds are becoming exposed as the ice leaves the edges of the runways. Birds are once again becoming a concern. Airport staff have been advised to keep a close watch on bird activity on and around the airport. Patrol frequency remains a high priority especially at this time of year when bird migration is at its peak.
