    Birdstrike KLM B747

    Last wednesday I was filming crosswind landings at runway18 R, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
    Around 15pm the PH-BFS got a birdstrike when flaring for touchdown.
    Happily the bird hit the nose instead of one of the engines.

    That was a great landing video with all that wing flex, even without the birdstrike.

    That bird was a goner the second it looked that 747 in the eyes

    I rarely take a moment to look at videos and yes this one was cool. "Pop goes the weasel" keeps running through my head!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
