Abstract : Over the past 30 years, much progress has been made to address the hazards proposed by birds to aircraft by the military, the aerospace industry, and international working groups. In an effort to "jump start" those researchers with bird hazard problems, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory has consolidated into a single document a significant portion of the literature on bird/aircraft interactions. This annotated bibliography of bird hazards to aircraft, termed ABBHA, is a compilation of citations with abstracts on a wide range of related topics such as bird strike tolerance engineering, bird hazard management and control, bird strike avoidance, and bird remains identification. ABBHA is available electronically and can be used with various word processing or bibliography management software. Computerization of the ABBHA reduces distribution costs, allows for frequent updates, and helps users to locate similar references on topics of interest through keyword "searches." The ABBHA citations included in this report include working papers published in the proceedings of the Bird Strike Committees of Europe, Canada, and the United States.
