A Quack In The Windshield

I recall My scoutmaster, 50 years ago, saying he was driving by the game refuge one day, and a golden pheasant came through the passenger side of the windshield and landed on the seat next to him. He then said he had $100 pheasant under glass for dinner.

That happened to the wing of my dad's T-33 during training. Except it was the wing. The wing where the cabin air intake was located. 2 days later he got in, hooked up his mask, took a big draw of air and spent the next few hours puking.

Seems the sea-gull made a small hole in the wing and pulverized throughout the available section. They had to steam clean the wing after disassembling it.

I believe that is a Ringedneck duck.
