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.

"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 Iíve seen.
