I'm looking for the account of a birdstrike that went through the radome, pressure bulkhead and instrument panel of a commercial aircraft. I believe it was an MD-88, either AA or DL. Anyone got a link?

I believe it was an ACA CRJ-200 that you are thinking of. IIRC, it resulted in the addition of the birdstrike barrier being added in the nose compartment. (A side effect of said barrier makes changing a windshield wiper motor twice as long as it should take Wink I don't have a link to the report though, sorry.

Thank you EMBQA...that is the one. Answers.yahoo.com still has people asking why there can't be screens installed on intakes and what's the big deal about a few dead birds. Rather amusing how people who have no experience in aviation are calling the engineers morons for not coming up with a solution like theirs.
