(Also, what must life be like when a bird getting sucked into the windshield of your private jet is ho-hum?)
Oprah Winfrey's private jet was forced to return to the city airport after its windshield was cracked in a collision with a bird, officials said.
Winfrey and her boyfriend, Stedman Graham, were not hurt in the incident, which occurred around 12:30 p.m. Monday just after the GulfStream jet had taken off from Santa Barbara Municipal Airport, said Santa Barbara Fire Department spokesman John Ahlman.
"This is not a totally unusual thing," Ahlman said of the cracked windshield. "We see these things pretty frequently."
