A lot better than the bird's survival chances.

I find it hard to believe that this is an actual photgraph and not a photo which has been doctored in something like photoshop.

My reasons for thinking this is that it shows the splatter in front of the point of impact but if the plane was moving at a fast enough speed to take off then the splatter would be behind the point of impact.

Also the angle at which the plane supposedly hit the bird would not have thrown the bird forward but it would have slid upwards and backwards towards the rear of the plane.

A nice try but no cigar this time.

Looking at the individual pixel suggests that this has not been photoshopped, but if you do wish to look at a stunning aircraft photo, then click here

One of the most remarkable photos I ever saw was taken from, I think, a Canberra as it did a low pass past the control tower (when such things were still allowed).

The picture shows the flash from the camera of a photographer stood on the tower balcony as he in turn took a photo of the Canberra.

That must have been coincidental to a millisecond!
