Bird Punches Hole in A-10 Thunderbolt at Air Show

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- You may have seen an accident in the air over the races Sunday, an Air Force A-10 hitting a bird during the Air Show.

The bird did some damage to the plane's vertical stabilizers, but the air force says the A-10 is built to withstand heavy damage and still fly safely.

Nevertheless, officials stopped the show for safety reasons saying it's not worth it to continue flying after a birdstrike.

Part of the bird was actually found inside the rear of the plane.
