True or false: A vulture flew so high, it got sucked into the engine of a jetliner at 37,900 feet
This bird is called a Ruppert's Vulture". It normally flies as high as a commercial jet. So do some geese. They have a protein in them that makes them resistant to low oxygen at high altitudes.
Jets that fly where these birds are try to watch out for them.
When I flew from LA to England, I saw a huge bird zip past the window over the ocean. I thought I was seeing things...but the pilot said he saw it too.

it was probably a terrorist bird trying to crash the plane
Yes, maybe it was an Islamic bird from Turkey. Al-Gobbel.
