From the Government of India, Ministry of Information, Films Division. Bird strikes pose one of the greatest dangers to air planes. This film advises people to refrain from throwing certain things (e.g. eatables or garbage near air ports)that may attract birds in the vicinity of airports . Flying birds near airports can be highly hazardous, as true experience of some pilots such as Sq. Ldr. Kurivilla proves it.
