I took one right in front of my face like that on short final once. I had the same reaction too.

Sucks killing a fellow aviator.

Man I though having a rock hit my window on the freeway made me jump, having a something hit you when you least expect it.

I hit one literally seconds before V1 right in the middle of my window. I bet I would have jumped 2 feet if I didn't have my harness on! I did feel bad for the bird though. Imagine going about your daily business, when WHAM you get nailed by a 1900 going 130Kts.

Just hit one 2 day ago on take-off in an A330. We had just rotated, saw a bird and heard a huge thump. Very sad, but hopefully it had no idea what hit it!

I'll never forget the first time I got a bird. Or the second.

Much the same as nailing a rabbit or any animal when driving. Not a good sound and a sad moment.
Luckily, I seem to have avoided all but two in my driving career thus far.

Sadly, I got as well an Eagle on my windshield. Only 40Kts on the motorway, but there was nothing that I could do to avoid the poor Bird. I still feel guilty.

I almost hit a gannet(t?) on finals in a Tomahawk, but it decided to formate with me down to 50 feet or so. Everything went better than expected on THAT landing, that's for sure....

Back in the early 80's a Republic Airlines (former North Central) CV-580 hit a Canadian goose descending into FSD. The bird went through the windshield and hit the Captain on the left head and shoulder. He lost his left eye but the doctors were able to save his left arm. There are 1 eyed airline pilots, but no 1 armed airline pilots. He got his medical license back after healing but his medical restricted him to only flying right seat, AND not with another 1 eyed pilot (must be the FAA 3 eye rule.) Later the right seat restriction was removed and he finished his career with NWA as an A330 Captain.

I once hit one on a short final in a B200 and it scared me so bad I did a go around. I was afraid of what had happened and it took me a few minutes to figure out what it was.

Was he Tasmanian - having two heads?   Sorry, couldn't resist.

But on a serious note, that's gotta suck!

When I was on a low level T-37 ride at Mather a hugh hawk filled the windscreen. Unfortunately I was totally screwing up my ride, my head was down in the cockpit totally task saturated, and did not see it coming. When the pilot yanked back on the stick pulling quite a few G's my head crashed into the dashboard cracking my visor.

I guess the CV-580 windows aren't tempered, then?

There's a probe on the windshield post before the strike, not there after.

This was posted once before but is perhaps the mother of all scary bird strikes......especially considering the aircraft, the altitude and all the possible ways this could have gone wrong.

It is still there, look through the assorted guts.
