Cool vid.

Nope, not uncommon at all. When I worked in a tower I'd get a birdstrike call at least once a week. We had one of the suckers crack a hole in the canopy of a TH-67. Never had a pilot call with one in the engine, though.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

A Mig 29 air force overseas plane went down at about 25,000 feet... pilot ejected about 5,000 feet off the ground...

sad part is... if the FAA is involved then you can find ANY airplane reporting down here... http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/query.asp

there's a video floating around of an F-16 (i think) from the cockpit where the intake sucked a bird in just after take off. the pilot ditched the plane, next thing you know, the video goes to static.

i've seen some pretty bloody airplanes from birds. usually wings and propellers take the brunt of the action, but once in a while a windshield is cracked because of one. never seen a bird in the engine, but i have pictures somewhere of the damage tar does to fan blades on a jet engine. needless to say, the company that had to pay for their engine damage was PISSED at the airport that opted to fill cracks on the runway a few hours before the departure rush.

I've probably had about 5 bird strikes while personally flying. You can usually see them coming at you. If you get hit its a pain in the ass because the mechanics have to come out and inspect the whole airplane.

We usually call the tower after it happens so they can see if there are any dead birds on the runway and clean them up.

I was working the night the United 767 had the birdstrike and came back in. Engine looked a bit damaged but all in all no big deal. The plane landed fine and was towed back to the hangar for safety reasons. Bird strikes are not fun in the engine or windshield but they do happen a lot. I've probably hit birds 4 times in over 6 years of airline flying. Mostly just a bloody mess on the fuselage or windshield.

I hit a bird once while co-piloting a Lear-25 while on a night approach into Columbus, Oh. It sounded like a shotgun went off IN the cockpit. At first I thought something let go in an engine and I looked in back to see if anything had come through the fuselage. When I swung the flashlight back around I noticed a bunch of blood smeared across the windshield on my side. That made me feel lots better. Bad day for the bird though.

My college roommate is a pilot for Northwest now...his first job was flying traffic reporters in Detroit. He hit a goose just after takeoff, shattered his windshield. He made an emergency landing, got some minor frostbite...and best of all, parked the plane like a car in front of the pilot's clubhouse (bar). He doesn't remember any of it

now i hate how noisy that damn plane is, but certainly not so much that i would be willing to cobain it to end my misery! i've always meant to ask somebody who drove one of those things, how loud is it in the cockpit? all the freight dogs here seem to keep ear plugs in while they're firing up. you can count on me having plugs AND a headset on around those straight pipes!
