Pássaros quase derrubam avião a jato da companhia aérea “Germania” durante decolagem com 80 passageiros a bordo de Dusseldorf para Kosovo.Perto de 200 pássaros foram sugados pelas turbina do lado direito do jato quando este já estava há mais de 300 km/h. Felizmente não houve a queda do aparelho…
Dwarfed by the jetliner, they look little more than a smattering of black dots.
But this flock of birds could have brought the plane crashing down in seconds.
They flew straight into the path of the Germania airlines flight to Kosovo as it took off from Dusseldorf airport with 80 on board.
‘It was like a scene from the Hitchcock movie The Birds. One second all was clear, and the next thing you saw were these birds swarming over the plane,’ said an onlooker.
It is thought more than 200 starlings were sucked into the right engine as the Boeing jet approached 200mph.
Others dented the fuselage but thankfully did not pierce it. Their splattered remains could be seen on the plane later

The stunt, which took just 2.9 seconds, shattered the existing world record for a descent in a kayak which stood at 108ft. He survived thanks to unique combination of currents which have been created what kayakers believe to be the softest water landing in the world.
The 26-year-old Brazilian had scoured the area searching for the perfect spot for an attempt on the record.
With a drop almost twice that of Niagara Falls, an estimated 5,000 cubic feet of 70F-warm water gush over the Salto Belo every second.
But the 26-year-old had to tour the 100ft-wide waterfall in search of the perfect boulder-free spot before embarking on his attempt.
Members of his Brazil World Record Attempt Expedition team watched anxiously as he finally slid over the lip of the falls, as they captured the terrifying stunt on camera.
Hurtling head first to the bottom, he disappeared from sight as he plunged into a deep pool at the bottom.
Moments later he emerged, unharmed, behind the waterfall and was even able to right himself by grabbing onto a boulder formation.
“Although people have certainly perished upon hitting a pool of water from such heights, the team counted on the massive, gushing rivers of central Brazil to produce the softest water landings on Earth,” said Ben Stookesberry, a member of the team.
Although the Niagara Falls, on the US-Canada border are higher, at 176ft, the actual drop is only 70ft because of rocks at the base.
