    @glipaz it occured during flight, and the bird did get chopped by the prop, maybe it’s not so evident in the footage but it happened that way. The bird was laying near the plane because it got stucked, so the plane landed with the bird almost inside.

    I do not understand. Did this occur during flight?? If so, how come the bird did not get chopped by the prop? Also, if it occured during flight, why was the dead bird on the ground near the plane??

    Opening the doors allows more air to flow through the cockpit instead of creating the parachute effect its somewhat flowing through

    You know you’re flying a Cessna when you have a bird strike and it is from behind!

    @shithappens0710 In preparation for an emergency landing one of the things you have to do is open the hatches, I think this is what fireFighterrock24 is talking about. Opening the hatches is vital in an emergency because you are most likely to land somewhere unsuitable, and if the airframe was to become damaged or warped, the hatches would be stuck open, not closed.

    como no los ven… yo me canso de verlos, de bajar el ala para no abollar el b de ataque… ni hablar cuando estan al frente, siempre redusco, y narizota bajo jeje en vuelo, cuando ellos disfrutan su vida… como fue la historia??

    You just caught your lunch there buddy…
    No, but that is both scary/cool that everybody was ok.

    it helped reduce the drag in the plane because it was just air pumping in with no where to go. and a 152 only has about 110 hp. so yea

    Que mal pedo!!!!!, el seguro paga no???? hahaha SALUDOS!

    wow, you’re lucky… but i don’t get why did you opened the doors.

  18. FireFighterrock24 on April 20th, 2011 3:47 pm

    i had a bird strike in a 150 wen i was a student….the thing took out the front windshild and landed in the back. i couldnt hold altitude due to the drag so i was looking 4 a place to land…i ended up opening the doors and i cold hold altitude at full power….but that shit sucks
