Be aware of birds when flying

The next time you fly on an airplane, keep your eyes peeled for birds—not drones—flying too close to the plane’s wing. Although in 2016, more drones have flown too close to airports compared to the previous year, none of those aerials actually smashed into airplanes, according to research released by the FAA this week. The report detailed more than 1,200 incidents of airplane pilots, law enforcement, air traffic controllers, and U.S. citizens reporting drones flying in places they shouldn’t.
