Piper the Aviation Bird Dog

Piper, the border collie, protects airplanes taking off at Cherry Capital Airport in Michigan from bird strikes — recall the geese that got sucked into a US Airways flight on the Miracle at the Hudson. Says his handler Brian Edwards: “When he goes out to deploy and chase something, it really looks like a missile launch.”

Such a fun story.
