Damn lucky they didn't get killed

When I was getting my license I almost hit a goose right after take off, I think the little 150 Cessna would have lost the battle

I'm surprised they didn't show the plane from the outside. They were VERY VERY LUCKY.

I saw a show on such a thing. They were suppose to have a hardend windshield to prevent the strike from coming in to the plane. I'm surpised that they didn't. Glad their OK.

Luck is a bit of an understatement.

Some will remember that geese that took down U.S. Airways flight 1549 five years ago yesterday. The pilot, Captain Sullenberger, made a miracle emergency landing on an icy Hudson River.

That plane was an Airbus A320-214 - similar in size and passenger capacity to a Boeing 727.
