[QUOTE=USAF Sarge;1869145]Funny story for yall. When my dad was stationed at Zaragoza AB, Spain (72-75) they had a "Bird" strike on a F-4. The pilot was incapacitated and the rear seater landed it. The base veterinarian clinic took samples to ID the bird. Some time later the results came back, it wasn't a bird it was a rabbit.

In the 1980's, a C-141 on approach to an airport on the African coast had a birdstrike that punched a hole in the wing leading edge. Aside from blood, guts and feathers, they found a large fish inside the leading edge. I feel sorry for that bird that had just picked up his dinner, then suddenly got whacked.
