Bird Strikes a Continued Problem at Sac International

sacinternationalSACRAMENTO–

There are more bird strikes reported each year at Sacramento International Airport than any other airport in California.

Although, new technology suggests the incidents could be prevented. A $500,000 radar system used to monitor wildlife near the runway could track animals.

But, a spokesperson from Sacramento International tells FOX40 that the technology, (used in other airports) “won’t meet the airport’s needs.”

More than 100 bird strikes are reported each year at Sacramento International.
