Mr. Mike Bierman takes Sonjia out for a practice flight. During the long days of summer, the falconers must split the birds’ flight times between the morning and early evening. The World Bird Sanctuary has 14 birds assigned to Travis. There are a variety of species, including desert birds and even local species.  The variety of birds allows the WBS to choose different birds for different seasons and climates. “It allows us to give some of the different birds a rest,” said Mr. Bierman. Mr. Bierman has been a part of the Travis BASH program for more than six years.  He has been a falconer for more than 14. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Raymond Hoy) BASH program uses teamwork to protect Travis jets from bird strike damages
Bird strikes are a major concern for not only Air Force bases, but any installation with aircraft. They cost the Air Force more than $53 million for fiscal 2004 and $21 million for 2005. Even though the total cost showed a decrease in 2005, the total number of bird strikes reported by aircrew and aircraft maintenance members continues to rise each

When the person on the other end of the line told Capt. James Weinstein to choose four of his cycling club’s best riders to join the President of the United States for a ride, he thought it had to be a joke. “I was like, yeah right, who is this really?” he said. However, after the captain dialed a phone number the person gave him and was connected
