Should maybe add to the title (Viewer discretion advised) since this could make some people a bit freaked out. Up to you…

That’s sad for the bird and the plane. I fixed the title for you :)

It is like the little dogs that bark and try to attack bigger dogs. Some birds think they are bigger than they really are!

How much time will the aircraft be out of service? They need to repair one engine and a slat, and check the landing gear.

No, bird studies have shown that they have neurons that can “convert the rate of apparent growth in size of an approaching object to an estimate of collision time.” But, that only works until at about 17mph, whereas an object over that limit will confuse the bird, such as a plane, and… kill it.

Nick Chan threw the poor bird towards the aircraft.

The IF Community turned into a murder mystery forum… all that blood.

I think the bird tried to kill the aircraft, and the aircraft defended itself.

With all that splatter, it was definitely a multi-strike incident.

Pulls sunglasses off, one-handed…“You thought you could just fly anywhere you wanted, didn’t you!?”

That has to be more than one bird. It’s probably a duck or a water bird.

Yeap I noticed the webbed feet…
