Ready for Take Off


This is NOT a joke. This picture was  on the front page  of The Times Picayune  on Jan 17. The accompanying article noted the pictured wildlife control officer fires blanks to clear birds out of critical airspace around Louis Armstrong International Airport.  “It’s enough to scare anybody,” he said of the bone-rattling boom.

Yes …. certainly anyone who happens to be boarding one of the 260 commercial jets that land and take off each day at MSY and looks out to see a man with a shotgun on the tarmac.
