There were scares in the air for three commercial airliners Wednesday.
The pilots each reported bird strikes while approaching New York’s LaGuardia Airport, prompting a new call to address what one report says is an increasing danger.
Bird strikes can cause loss of life and serious damage to planes, and LaGuardia has seen its share of them over the years, CBS News’ Jeff Pegues reports. Because it’s located on the water, it has a large population of geese.
But bird strikes are happening at airports across the country.
