US Airways Cactus 1020 bird strike @ MCO
« on: May 14, 2012, 05:56:38 PM »
A Cactus Boeing 757-200, struck a bird about a mile out from 36R and as one of the pilots reported, "it looked like they got punched in the nose"

Nice audio! 8-)
this other pilot like to rush things, and don't want to wait until the visual check has ben finished.
