Bird hits plane in Colorado, or does plane hit bird?

As natives of the sky, it’s difficult to find birds at fault when they smash into humans-things during flight.

On Tuesday morning, a giant gash was left on the nose of a United Airlines Boeing 737 when it collided with a bird while landing in Denver, reports 9News.


Here are more skyward collisions of human and feathered beast.
