[+] serious ballot by forgetmenot

This is an "I answer it for you quiz". It is true! A vulture was the unfortunate bird that broke the high-flight record for all birds, by getting sucked into a jet engine 37, 900 feet over western Africa. Jetliners typically fly at 30,000 to 40,000 feet.

I didn't know birds could fly that high.

I guess anything is possible
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.

Yes, maybe it was an Islamic bird from Turkey. Al-Gobbel.
