Birds Striking Planes: Omen of Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Prophecy?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"When we hear that a plane was hit by a bird strike, we think it is something very serious and extremely dangerous, and it is but it is not as uncommon as we may think. The Federal Aviation Administration has reported that bird strikes happen in the U.S. about 20 times a day, and cause nearly $600 million in damage to planes every year, nationwide.

Last week alone, coincidentally all on Thursday, April 19, there were three bird strikes that were reported and two of the planes were transporting some very important government officials."

Hundreds of dead birds fell from the sky over Beebe, Arkansas on New Year`s Eve for the second year in a row. Since this is the fateful year 2012 everything that happens this year must be viewed through the prism of Maya prophecy.

Was this weird incident a sign that perhaps the world as we know it will end on Dec. 21, 2012? Recently there have been a few incidents of birds striking planes, causing severe damage, and rattling the nerves of passengers.

Birds aren`t targeting airplanes as a warning that the End of the World is nigh, during spring we see an increase in birds striking planes for the simple reason that it`s migrating season.

It`s birds not bombs that are more likely to cause severe damage to a plane or even bring it down.

Other than eliminating grassy fields or wetlands near airports, there`s little we can do. One thing I definitely won`t do is fly on Dec. 21, 2012, I`m not about to tempt fate. If you fly on Dec 21 and you see a flock of geese heading your way: Say your prayers.
