Can a 1 inch nylon orb penetrate and pass through a steal billet?
If a flying bird can damage a windsheld can a plastic ball do damage to steel?
What are the results when a bird hits a P51 Mustang?
Quote from: SeanB on 10/06/2010 19:30:06...suitably defrosted...There's an old apocryphal story that relates back to the early development of these chicken guns: A UK aircraft development establishment borrowed an early chicken gun from a US aeronautical company to test the windscreen (windshield) of a new aircraft they were developing against bird strikes but every time they fired a chicken at the windscreen, not only did it entirely shatter the windscreen but it also passed right back through the cockpit cabin and through the cabin bulkhead too. Of course, when they faxed off (this was well before e-mail) the details of the test to find out what was going wrong they got back the response "thaw the chicken!"
