FAA Scolds iPad Bird-Strike Videographer
(WASHINGTON) — Even if you don’t remember the name Grant Cardone, surely you remember his video. Cardone was on the recent Delta flight hit by birds shortly after takeoff at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport.
While filming out of the window with his iPad, Cardone caught the sudden blur of birds pass his window, followed by the thud of them smashing into the plane’s engine. Use of electronics during take off is strictly prohibited by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The FAA has now issued Cardone a warning letter encouraging him to comply with regulations on future flights.
“In cases where there is evidence that a passenger has used a personal electronic device on a flight at a time when it was not allowed, the FAA may elect to send a warning notice to the passenger to encourage compliance with regulations on future flights,” the FAA said in a statement.
