Plane makes emergency landing after freak collision with Eagle and Rabbit strike at once

My guess is that Virgin Australia flight found it and used it in the same breath.

This has all the hallmarks of an urban legend - except that it is true

Poor old Eagle - missed out on dinner

CASA should regulate that eagles AND rabbits should now be transponder equipped!!!
