UK drone collision study didn't show airliner window penetration

The study also looked at what happens when drones collide with helicopter windscreens

I'd actually love to see a drone get even vaguely close to a helicopter screen, the downwash from those rotors would send anything coming close heading in a rapidly downward direction... Unless it was propelled against the screen by being drawn through the rotors from above, which would have me more concerned about their ability to withstand strikes than the windscreen!
