“A parrot owner was given £2,200 in compensation after a low-flying RAF plane caused his feathered friend to drop dead.

The pet bird was terrified by the noise when the Hercules transport aircraft roared over its owner’s house.

Its death in Ayrshire followed a similar incident where a low-flying plane caused a parrot to fall off its perch and break both its legs. Military chiefs agreed to cover vet bills – including two splints.
