- Flightlevel390
Climbing out of KSMF is a prime time to hit geese and I have forgotten to turn the radar ON. It is mostly an old wives tale about radar scaring geese away from the flight path, but the old timers used it when I was a co-pilot. Their theory was that microwave emissions somehow affected the little bird brains and would make them scatter ahead of the aircraft.

I have hit geese twice, both times descending into KSMF, and both times with the radar OFF. There might be some validity to it... Anyway, radar ON.


Thanks Slow, interesting reading... Smile

It's nice to see Flight Officer Ellen Ripley over on the right-hand margin of aviation notables. Laughing
