I'd be hard pressed to believe that unless their cables are held together by Scotch tape. A full growing Flamingo only weighs about 8 pounds - he'd have to be humming along at Mach Two in order to create that sort of damage :-)

Might be one of the new stealth flamingos that the Dutch army is prototyping. This would explain why the engineers couldn't see anything out of the ordinary, as well as the speed necessary to affect the cables.

Unless a flamingo shorted out two parallel wires-- a flying flamingo has the length to do that. There is at least one documented case of birds shorting out adjacent transmission lines in the States; read about it years ago.

I'm telling you- my husband saw that huge 'flamingo person' flying first class out of Florida- probably a (gasp!) terrorist who dressed up, snuck down to Bonaire and sabotaged the power lines so that everyone would have to go elsewhere and leave the great diving and all to us!! (The stealth flamingos referenced earlier!!)

Hmmm, strange things happening on Curaçao... Maybe they had a testflight with the new stealth Flamingo schedueld in the WEB plant on Bonaire as well??

You guys are cracking me up...Jake, your comment reminds me of the line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail..."how much does a swallow weigh"....maybe a flamingo carrying a coconut is the culprit...
