Air Force Two hit a bird in Chicago today as it was carrying Dick Cheney to a speaking engagement. Thankfully the plane managed to land safely.
WASHINGTON - Air Force Two carrying Vice President Dick Cheney struck a bird as the plane neared O'Hare International Airport on Friday. The aircraft landed safely.
Mechanics checked the plane while Cheney spoke at the Heritage Foundation's annual leadership conference, but the incident did not delay his departure from the airport to return to Washington.
"A bird hit the right engine of the plane upon landing," said Megan McGinn, a spokeswoman for Cheney. "He was told after he delivered his remarks."
Apparently no lawyers were hurt during the impromptu hunting trip.
