If the fish impacted rear end first, I suppose it should have been reported as a 'tail strike'. Always somebody carping about one thing or another!Alex Reid

Sure, and you notice the osprey got the blame when everyone knows it is those pesky Canadian carp trying to learn to fly.Mel

Geofa, hanks so much! You've made my day :( Though of course no emergency situation is funny.But now that we know everything's fine, the mere idea of a 'fish strike' (a carp, lol!) gives me such a big laugh.

Absolutely awesome. Osprey (my favourite kind of bird) takes out airliner (my least favourite kind of airplane) with fish ordnance. That totally made my day. Thanks for posting that Geof. :)-Mike
