Cheney Safe - Bird Dead
- Air Force Two carrying Vice President Dick Cheney struck a bird as the plane neared O'Hare International Airport on Friday. The aircraft landed safely.
Mechanics checked the plane while Cheney spoke at the Heritage Foundation's annual leadership conference, but the incident did not delay his departure from the airport to return to Washington.
''A bird hit the right engine of the plane upon landing,'' said Megan McGinn, a spokeswoman for Cheney. ''He was told after he delivered his remarks.''
