Nasty business. Sitting in my truck by the runway I got a view of a bizjet hitting two large birds that was a lot better than I needed. Nice red stripes all the way down the fuselage and pieces of birds all over the place.
A few days later there was a dog strike, the poor creature was to be sent by air but escaped and ran onto the runway.
Guy I used to work with hit a deer on rotation with a Cessna. Now, that guy was lucky! Reconstructing, it must have barely missed the prop and gone between the nose gear and the right main. Then it struck the empennage, but somehow managed to miss the horisontal stab. Needless to say, he made a few very careful attempts at landing, testing one wheel at a time, before putting it back on the ground...
By law it is required to notify the police of any wildlife accidents here, which he did. Apparently the conversation went something like:
"I've hit a deer"
"Allright, what were you driving"
"I was flying an aircraft"
"Call back when you're sober"
I thought I was doing good trying to avoid those airport hotels... and look at me now.
