Hector International Airport has methods in place to prevent bird strikes
FARGO - In the wake of Thursday's bird-related belly landing of an airliner in New York, the executive director of Fargo's Hector International Airport says birds are an on-going hazard in Fargo.
In fact, birds are a problem at most airports.
Hector's Shawn Dobberstein says a number of methods are used locally to keep bird strikes to a minimum.
Dobberstein says airport-related bird strikes can happen at any time, but seem to be more common here during the summer.
