"This is not a totally unusual thing. We see these things pretty frequently." So Santa Barbara Fire Department spokesman John Ahlman said commenting on the after Christmas incident happened to talk show queen . Monday Dec 26th, the private jet of the star was forced to return to a Santa Barbara, California airport after colliding with a bird.
After spending Christmas in her 42-acre seaside estate in nearby Montecito, Oprah and her longtime beau, Stedman Graham, boarded her Gulfstream jet to fly to the east coast. Unfortunately, shortly after taking off, a bird struck the windscreen, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing at 12:30pm local time. Luckily the two persons are okay.
