I doubt the bird will have the guts to do that again.

Back in 1979 at Whiting Field, FL a friend of mine (Steve H.) on his 3rd flight as a student in a T-34C took a Turkey Buzzard through the front of the canopy. Hit him square in the chest and knocked him senseless. The instructor in the back got hit by all sorts of parts, blood etc, and since Steve slumped forward, and was pushing on the stick, the instructor thinking his student was dead, bailed out leaving Steve behind. He came to, saw that the canopy had been blown, recovered the plane and flew back towards Whiting. Since he was on his 3rd flight, and having no previous flight time, having only a couple of touch and goes from his second flight, he was literally talked down to a safe landing. For his accomplishment, Steve was the only one when he received his wings to have an Air Medal, and a call sign..Birdman. I only wish I could have seen the look on the instructors face when he was told his student had successfully flown home and landed. Can't blame him for jumping, Steve is 6'2" and a good 220lbs of the US Marine finest.

There are a few more details than the above post provided. It was not the student's third flight; it was his last hop prior to the safe-for-solo checkride. The instructor was also temporarily knocked unconsciensious and also temporarily blinded by debris from the buzzard which had hit him in the face splitting his face shield. The instructor, also a Marine (Major), made an attempt to communicate with the student after he regained conscientiousness; however, he got no response. Since the instructor couldn't see and believed the debris on this face was from the student, he thought they had had a mid-air with another aircraft. He also felt the aircraft was starting to depart controlled flight. Bailing out was the only option he had. I was an instructor in that squadron at the time of the incident and this is my recollection.

Rule #1, no matter what always fly the aircraft. Pilot did a great job of maintaining his composure with half a wind shield and bird all over his lap. I thought it was really cool how they were able to slow it down and show you how close the glass came to their faces. These two men were very fortunate, that said they did an awesome job. Thanks for the video, this site is great!

I saw the result of a buzzard strike on a Barron at San Antonio Intl. some years back.

My wife and I were guests of my buddy and his wife on a day trip to the RiverWalk. We had just walked into the FBO after landing in his T210. We needed a taxi and I noticed one was parked outside. I asked the attendant if the taxi was available. He said "no, it is for some buys coming arriving in a Barron. That's the plane right there." I looked in the direction that he was pointing and saw the twin taxing very fast. He was headed right for us!

The plane came to an abrupt halt, and the pilot jumped out, and raced inside the FBO. He looked like he has been tarred and feathered! As I watched two more guys exit the plane, I could see that they has faired no better. They both were covered in blood, guts and feathers.

An investigation of the plane reviled a large hole on the copilot side of the windscreen, a total mess inside, and a lump of buzzard in the baggage area.

The reason the pilot had raced inside was because the strike had knocked out his radio stack, and he needed to let the tower know why he has stopped communicating.

Long story short, those poor guys golf outing in San Antonio just wasn't going to happen, so I looked at one of them and said "Hey, do you still need that cab?" We were at the RiverWalk in no time!

I HATE Canada Geese.

Perhaps that is because you've never had one prepared properly. Candor compels me to admit that skinning one with flying canopy shards is not the preferred method.
They can be problematical on the ground as well. Mugger ducks I call them.

Unbelievably, Friday while driving on I95 in Maine, a flock of wild turkey's crossed in front of us. One missed the windshield by inches.
Why me again? Once was enough.

Coincidentally, the town of Bodega Bay recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS.

a goose made them duck - let me think about that. I had a turkey vulture take out my prop governor and lost control of the prop. Oil all over the windshield - landed safely. I look for birds now - all the time.

Thank goodness for safety glass! Could have been a lot worse.

Nice Job maintaining your composurer aand flying the aircraft. You were lucky but I must tell you there is a REAL GOD and HIS angels watch over us. Thank HIM you are alive. I can only think about Chesley Sullenberger coming off LGA and all engines out and the George Washington bridge coming up fast in the windscreen. And he in a matter of microseconds decided that TEB EWR AND MAYBE EVEN CDW WERE NOT GONNA HAPPEN. We all need to remember that kind of professionalism when we fly only when you are 10 feet above the ground and inverted can you say Oh Sh*t. Later all

def God and his angels; that's why nobody ever crashes.

Video: Pilots survive mid-air goose strike

Two Illinois pilots are lucky to be alive after a goose crashed into their plane's windscreen mid-flight totally smashing the glass. The video uploaded to file sharing site LiveLeak, shows the bird come crashing through the windscreen, sending shards of glass all over the control board and forcing both men to duck.

Bird Strike Caught on Camera

Pilot Keith Baird initially thought something aboard his 1968 Cessna 210 had exploded just after takeoff on December 28 when he heard a loud bang and a significant increase in outside air noise. It turned out that Baird’s Cessna had struck a Canada goose as the aircraft was climbing through 400 feet on departure from the Chicago-area Brookeridge Airpark.
