Gothamist knew Canadian geese were vicious, but this is ridiculous: A gaggle of geese flew into an American Airlines flight leaving LaGuardia, forcing it to land at Kennedy minutes later. The geese damaged "both the plane and the engine on its right side" according to American Airlines spokespeople. The plane is a two-engine F-100, which seems small, but still, Canadian geese... that boggles the mind. Though it does remind of that cool part in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when senior Dr. Jones played by Sean Connery uses birds to kill the Nazi pilot after them, but that was only funny because a Nazi died.
