New York, NY - A possibly inebriated US Airways pilot careened into a flock of innocent geese earlier today, killing at least 2, injuring several others, and doing tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage to his aircraft. The geese, who were out for brisk morning's flight above The Big Apple, were reportedly astonished to find the aircraft bearing down on them, on a collision course with their peaceful excursion. Two of their party were sucked into the jet's turbine engines, immediately killed by the spinning blades. The geeses' identities have not yet been released.
Officials have not yet revealed if charges will be filed against the pilot, who safely landed the craft in the Hudson River after the massacre. Goose spokesmen have not yet released a statement.
