Crop Duster doing it's job near Laurel, DE.

Great to see these. Not so common here now. Once extensively used and a common site.

They also came with inherent dangers as in crashes at low altitude.
Had my experiences with them.
Surveying a rural road and got crop dusted. We were convinced pilot did it deliberately as adjacent paddock wasn't worth dusting and roads and railways met.
Another survey involved low flying (strafing) the neighbour and I was called in to survey heights.
Federal intervention.
Some pilots were characters :-P

Crop duster pilots are a crazy bunch.

Last summer before I left Oklahoma they had two crop duster pilots killed in separate crashes, one struck a radio tower and another clipped a grove of trees.

Agree. One plowed into a hillside not far from here leaving huge furrow and inevitable consequences.
Wasn't going to like as it's rather inappropriate comment, but wanted to acknowledge your input.

Birds can be a concern around airfields, and there are lots around @Schiphol.

I looked at that top photo and wondered if it'd collided with a light pole, but then read second post and wondered if they were related?
Or is it all okay?

Curious as to what's the mess at the end of the wing?
I don't frequent planes, airports so bit foreign to me  :p

The OP can comment obviously, but the KLM jet is fine. You're just seeing forward slats, used for low speed lift, similar in some ways to flaps. When I first saw it, I wondered, too. I went to his Flickr site, downloaded the image, and it looked just fine. On the other photo with the tower, the other jet, which looks like a 747-400, is well clear of the tower. The birds just happen to be by the airport.

Around here, in the DC area, airport DCA (Reagan National Airport) has many things to try to scare birds. There are bird cannons, either recordings of cannons or real explosive cannons, designed to scare birds away. There are also recorded bird sounds, but of birds in distress, again to scare birds away. DCA is on the Potomac River, and birds love it. Jet engines don't feel the same love, however.

The pole is well clear to the side of the runway and is part of the navigation system of the airfield. No collision :-)

The mess at the end of the wing: front of the wing you see the slats, they are extended to generate extra lift at takeoff or landing. At the rear of the wing you see the flaps (hanging down), again for extra lift, and the spoilers (standing up) to kill the lift after touchdown to prevent the aircraft from taking of again. All perfectly normal and as designed :-)

A USAF C-17 cargo jet. A bunch of them are based here in Charleston SC, but this one did a coastal flyby on July 4th.
