The windscreen is one of the hardest things on an airplane. It's the aluminum and composite that is more likely to be penetrated.

Manufacturers test windscreens by using a large air gun to fire chicken carcasses at them. One company got really bad results until somebody realized that the chickens should be thawed out first. :p

You should see the cabin pressurization test to failure! Nothing but Styrofoam snowflakes floating in the air.

Got to love the caption on Facebook from a supposed aviation fanpage.

"A Boeing 787 hits a buzzard...."

That page is all jokes and aircraft misidentification is one of the long running jokes on there. One of the funniest pages I’ve seen.

That was from engine testing.

The windshields are tested with frozen birds. geese regularly get sucked up in storms and frozen.

Why would you be flying in a TS that's severe enough to inhale and freeze a goose? Doesn't matter how strong the windshields are if the wings don't stay on.

I’m calling BS on this. Show us some test standards. It’d take dipping a goose in liquid nitrogen to get it to freeze that quickly. I don’t doubt they get sucked up, but they won’t freeze that quickly.

14CFR25 says nothing about frozen birds.

This reminds me of a Myth Busters episode where the quip or quote was, “gentle, thaw your turkeys “ when the turkeys were breaking through.

Throwing turkeys? When do you ever see a flying turkey. They’re too fat they can’t fly. While they’re at it they should throw some mashed potatoes and gravy at the engines too.

Should the cranberry sauce be thawed?

Wild turkeys may be airworthy, but domestic cage-raised turkeys are a fowl version of Jabba the Hutt. :p
