11. Plane landing in dense fog hits swans
EUGENE, Ore. - Mark Mathis had a front row seat on Alaska/Horizon flight 2299 from Seattle-Tacoma to Eugene.

On the approach to EUG, he thought the plane hit some turbulance.

The airline said the jet hit 3 swans at about 200 feet in the air in very foggy conditions. >>> MORE ON THIS STORY
