Usaf C-12 Birdstrike Manchester England

Sun Jan 28, 2007 6:14 am

Whilst Transitting the Manchester TMA yesterday, C-12 40-162 suffered a birdstrike to one of the Cockpit windows over Pole Hill Beacon. It diverted into Manchester International, and has sat there ever since awaiting a new winscreen/windshield from its Base. I have just posted a picture of the said aircraft at Manchester. A welcome visitor for whatever the reason !

I hope no one (except the bird) got hurt. Did the bird go through the windshield, or just shatter it?
