the bird strike one we fixed up was intense
it got hit coming in to land, one smashed into the irls desig and basically stitched glass or whatever into the intakes, then the bird carried on into the port intake and fucked it all up. lucky he was low, close and slow otherwise he'd have had to eject. came in yawing all over the place, engine sounded like someone being tortured and it was pluming black smoke out of its vtol vents
pretty awesome sight, pilot was cool as shit after it too.
