Two eagles, locked in mid-air, plummet on to Duluth airport runway
DULUTH -- Two adult bald eagles made an unplanned landing on the tarmac at the Duluth International Airport on Sunday.
The two birds had locked talons in mid-air and couldn’t get separated before they crashed to the concrete, said Randy Hanzal, a conservation officer with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Both birds survived the fall but remained entangled.
“Their talons were embedded in each other very deeply,” Hanzal said.
