WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials say birds struck Vice President Joe Biden’s plane as it was landing Thursday night at Santa Barbara Airport in California. Nobody was injured.

Maj. Michelle Lai of the U.S. Air Force 89th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Office says two to three birds hit the right side of Air Force Two.

Biden left Santa Barbara as scheduled Friday morning on another plane. Lai says Air Force Two was grounded as it was being inspected for damage.

It’s not clear what kind of birds collided with the giant Boeing 757. Biden was in Santa Barbara for a fundraiser.
