A Czech L-159 fighter suffered bird strike during training in Spain with a 3 meters spread bird.

The shock of the airplane crash was quite strong but fortunately did not affect the cockpit , then the pilot so I decided to continue the flight.

However the pilot was ready for immediate ejection during landing when the behavior of such a damaged machine can change quickly.
The L-159 will be transported back to the Czech Republic on the road.
