    Tiger Moth biplane hits cow on landing

    In this brief video, a de Havilland Tiger Moth (a 1930s biplane) is undergoing what looks like a forced landing in a field. Most Tiger Moths didn't have brakes, and visibility is limited when the pilot is in the back seat. The pilot sticks the landing, but the Tiger Moth high-fives a cow at 0:40. Someone call PETA.



    You can pause the video, then watch frame-by-frame using the period key to advance forward a frame, and the comma key to go back.

    Thanks for the tip on the frame forward and back! I had always used LR arrow but know that isn't frames? I couldn't tell the wing dipped or rose at all on impact, but bet there were tears in the fabric the way that cow went down.

    As for the bird strike in the 210...Sheeze blood and feathers wouldn't be the only clean up imho. Scary and lucky as heck to hit in the middle like that. Thank goodness he had 28 years of experience and got an atta boy and Merry Christmas!

    Last time I saw the Thunderbirds at Mather the gal pilot had a bird strike in the middle of a tight maneuver with 2 others...graceful as all get out she pulled away, circled around and landed safely.

    You're welcome; I've been using YouTube for a decade, but only figured out that trick last week!

    You can also hold down period or comma to watch in slow motion.

    The poor cow probably had tears in her
    eyes, as well.
