In hopes that somebody around here has experience in these matters..

How much damage would a bird strike do to a Cessna 152 travelling at ~100 knots or so? Would it go through the windshield?

Force equals mass*acceleration
Asumming that the Bird has ~2 LB , at a deceleration of 100 knots
F= 0.907kg *( 51.4 m/s^2) = 46.62 Newton :rolleyes:
