It sure does - too bad for the bird!

Interesting clip.

Don't think so - looks more like the bird diving towards the ground to catch its prey.

I just replayed a few times and it looks like the bird is closer to the camera than the aircraft is, i.e. the aircraft is well behind it and was thus not struck. That's what it looks like to me, anyways...

Depth-of-field in photos and videos can be deceiving...

Nice quality video though.

Maybe the wake of the ATR affected the birds flight...

That was my thought after watching the video. I think the bird crossed behind the a/c and was driven downward by the planes wake. You'll notice there was no "cloud of feathers" typical of a bird actually making contact with the a/c.
Good video though.

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

Hi!

Seems the bird got in one of the vortexes which the ATR generated during the climb, what caused the birds descend...

Aviation! That rocks...

Definitely not a bird strike.

I would have to agree with those who think it was the bird flying behind the airplane. It even rolled as it dove to the ground. The ATR puts out a surprising amount of wake for an aircraft its size, especially if your driving a Mark I sparrow.

Yeah, and given the fact that the bird would have turned into a puff of red mist and feathers on contact--didn't occur--and the bird continued to attempt flight to the right before rapidly reaquiring the localizer and decending fast Big grin leads me to beleive..

..that this was not a bird strike, but it sure looked like one at first!

I looked at that a few times, and whilst it appears it was a bird strike, I don't think it is. Like the others said, maybe just driven down by the planes windforce


It feels so wrong to stare without paying......

In my professional opinion, I don't think it was a birdstrike either. Impressive video though.

If it was not a birdstrike, then why did the bird shoot immeditely down. Would it not have gone down at the angle by which the plane was climbing? Just some food for though (mmm, food)!
