Funny, x 7 just proved my point. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KhZwsYtNDE)
If you believe Naughtyhorse, that plane should have fallen out of the sky and exploded! Strange how it just kept climbing. Almost like the aircraft designers planned it that way?
A bird strike to a cessna windscreen is a very bad thing. I've seen it first hand. When you fly light aircraft, you are very aware of this fact. Fortunately, with single engine aircraft, the prop usually gets the bird before it comes through the windscreen. Not so with twins.
Large jet aircraft have much stronger windscreens than light aircraft. They will usually take a bird strike without complete failure of the windscreen (maybe a little cracking).
Way back when I was learning to fly, we hit a Red-Tail Hawk on short final. Luckily for us, the bird hit the wing at about it's midpoint. The impact actually caused the plane to yaw hard to the right. It caused some damage to the plane, but it was still flyable. If it had hit the windscreen, I wouldn't be writing this.
