Death in the Sky, a sad day for our Feathered Friends  

Bird strike from a flock of Black Birds. Multiple strikes leaving lots of feathers and blood all over a King Air 200. There were approximately 20 to 30 strikes on the gear, wings, engines, intakes and tail but none on the nose or wind shield. Due to the relatively slow approach speed of 100-110 kts and the small size of the birds the only damage was one small dent.
