Circumstances:
Just after lift off, the aircraft struck birds. Both engines lost power and the crew elected to make an emergency landing on the remaining runway. The aircraft landed with its undercarriage retracted, overran runway, crossed a fence and a road and came to rest 1,000 feet further on in a cornfield. Both occupants were uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
