Air Force falcon flies off, is found after sightseeing in Shreveport
With a jaunty "so long, suckers," the Air Force falcon that is so majestic in its stadium flyovers was so gone before the Independence Bowl.
"It's not atypical for the birds to lose concentration or panic and fly away," an Air Force Academy spokesman told Fox News of Monday night's see-ya. "They rely on trainers for food, so they usually come back."
A tracking device ended the falcon's par-tay in downtown Shreveport a couple of hours later. It would be nice to end this by saying the falcon was found drunk and disoriented, wandering the streets, but that isn't true.
