Problem: Bird droppings landing on fighter jets and pre-flight area under the alert bays. There were birds nesting on ceiling beams and under structures. The droppings along with the potential for bird air strike because of the birds’ presence were the issue.
Solution: ¾ inch mesh black knotted polyethylene installed to create a modified ceiling of net under the areas that birds were nesting. All areas around beams, lights and conduits addressed and successfully excluded.
Result: Client area secured from nesting birds and without any further incidents because of the installed measures.
