should paint nose art on the plane and call it "Salmon Chanted Evening" or "For The Halibut" - it's hard to make a nose art / fish pun with the word sheepshead.

Yep.. happened a while ago, with Alaska Airlines and the Salmon-Thirty-Salmon.

A pelican regurgitated his dinner while in flight, air sickness, no doubt.

This is just too funny... I know there are Bird Strike Inspections after a bird strike, but a Fish Strike.. Guess you would have to follow the same procedure.

You should read the real story about how Alaska had coined the phrase "Salmon-Thirty-Salmon", and where the name for the livery came from.

Here. Enjoy.

A big waste of taxpayers money to send it off for analysis.

Jet aborts takeoff after 'fish strike' at Florida air base

A jet departing from a Florida military base had to abort its takeoff because of a "fish strike." Officials from the MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa tell The Tampa Tribune a Gulfstream G-IV jet being flown by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) hit "a 9-inch sheepshead" fish in the incident, which occurred in September.

'Fish Strike' Prevents Airplane from Taking Off

It was more like a fish being carried by a bird, but still makes a good headline.
