A bird hits a plane window

Bird hits plane window

Flying in a plane is generally a very safe endeavour, and is getting safer and safer.  This is comforting for someone like me who flies frequently, albeit, less than I used to.  However, accidents still happen, and in this modern world, more and more of these are being recorded by camera, either with still photos or with video.  That is exactly what happened recently to Rob Weber who was flying in Florida when a bird flew through his window.  The windscreen shattered, although luckily he was not seriously injured, and he managed to land the plane safely.

 

The video is quite dramatic.  It should be comforting, though, that even in this extraordinarily unlucky situation, the plane still landed safely, even after the bird hits the plane window.
