Romanian plane hits horse on takeoff
5 December 2006

A Saab 2000 operated by Carpatair struck a horse on take-off from Bacau airport, Romania. The airplane continued to its destination Timisoara where a fly-by was made to allow a visual inspection of the landing gear. No problems were noted and a safe landing was made. It appears that three horses had wandered onto the runway at Bacau. (Adevarul OnLine)
