RE: Evidently The Dash 8 Has An Open-Air Cockpit!

This is not a unique incident. Birds penetrated the windshield of a Southwest 737 on approach to Tampa a couple of years back. Here's the link to the NTSB entry: <a href = "http://www.ntsb.gov/NTSB/brief.asp?ev_id=20001208X08701&key=1">http://www.ntsb.gov/NTSB/brief.asp?ev_id=20001208X08701&key=1</a>
