Meet the Hero Dog Who Protects Planes From Bird Strikes


Great Big Story meets Brian Edwards, an airport operations supervisor at Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Michigan, and his real-life Air Bud, Piper, who's tasked with the important job of keeping planes safe from bird strikes.
"Birds can pose a huge threat to flight safety, but when they see Piper on his way, geese, ducks and gulls flee the runways. It’s an important job, but not one without its share of fun."
