Wow!  eek  It appears that the captain's yoke is damaged on the right side... I've seen the pictures of this airplane before but never those of the cockpit! Amazing what a bird can do when impacted at very high speed! The Captain really risked to get hurt!

The yoke was not damaged as the bird that penetrated the cockpit pressure bulkhead never made it past the instrument panels. The "displaced" panel you see was simply removed from its mounted position for investigators to document the damage. This was done very shortly after the plane landed.

He risked nothing more than what we "risk" everyday. He just happened to be the unlucky individual sitting in that seat at that time.

Going off of memory... 310-315 kias accellerating to cruise climb.... I see birds above 10,000 feet on a fairly regular basis.

Reminds me of the MD-80 that hit a cormorant climbing out of ORD last year. Difference being that the only part hit was the #1 engine. Very messy.

About three years ago we had a 737 that sucked up birds into BOTH engines. Fortunately they must have been starlings or some other small bird because there were no other strikes to the rest of the aircraft. Luckily for me someone else was assigned to work on the aircraft taht night. He spent a good part of the might cleaning bird gute off the N1 fan and the bypass.

Thanks for this clarification AAR90, I was thinking what kind of bird could penetrate the cockpit and tear away the instrument panel...  Confused what you say makes much more sense.

Those pictures remind me of that old urban legend about the frozen chickens Big grin
