    Awesome job by the pilot...




    Strike at 1:40... if you listen carefully someone busted Charlie before all poop hit the fan

    I downloaded it, then watched frame-by-frame...the bird seems to drop almost straight down as it comes into view/hits the windscreen.

    I've seen birds "drop" like that, as a way to get away from my aircraft, when I've flown towards them.

    Which is why the advice I'd heard is that if you see a bird and are worried about hitting it, yank the plane upward.

    The frames I captured occurred in less than .2 seconds, (.17 actually) from start to finish.

    He never saw it coming. I think there's another video somewhere of a different camera angle from behind the right seat. If it is the same incident, and I think it is, you get an even better view of the impact. Scary stuff, for sure.

    Edit: I just looked again, and it is not the same incident.

    Pretty obvious the bird busted the C and was trying to dive below the shelf.

    I'm glad my one bird strike was nothing like that. Great job by the pilot.

    One heck of a closure rate. Must have been one fast bird.
