“We tested her voice out on the speakers, and her voice not only scares away birds but some of them actually died as well. Yeah, no kidding, they fell out of the sky stone dead. Maybe the military should think about using Whitney’s voice in Iraq too,” Jerry Trimble, an air traffic controller at Birmingham airport’s terminal 4 told the BBC.
For a long time, airports have been using sirens piped through speakers to scare away birds in case they fly into planes engines and cause a crash.
“At least her voice is now being used for something useful instead of battering peoples eardrums in concerts, we can scare away birds and avoid fatal plane crashes,” Mr Trimble said.
In addition to UK airports using the pop diva’s voice to scare away birds from runways, there is widespread interest from airport authorities around the world.
Whitney’s record company, Crackpipe Records, is currently negotiating a royalty rate so that Whitney can buy more crack with the proceeds.
