That's why we're paid the big bucks.
My thoughts are if I know we have had multiple bird strikes AND I see stuff on the engine instruments I would do RTO even a bit past V1. How much past, judgement grasshopper.
A few decades back we took a gut full of sparrows in 2 engines of a B707 around V1 and flew a tight circuit. Very lucky, the engines were not doing well.
Our problem is, as always, that the experts will present to the court exactly what we should have done after considering it for weeks but we have seconds.
The only real question is did the pax walk away?
