There's a camera everywhere these days. Robert Weber was flying his single-engine plane near Fort Meyers, Florida over the weekend when a bird smashed right through his windshield! This guy is a cool customer and was able to land the plane without a problem. The bird hit a 170mph and sent glass everywhere. If you have ever hit anything in your car imagine what it's like to have this happen a couple thousand feet in the air. Freebird! Not so much.
Have you ever had something hit your windshield while driving? Here's what a few of my Facebook friends said.
A rock once, as I crossed the bridge.....but I do remember a monkey having a little personal party on my windshield once at Six Flags. ha!
