Cockpit video shows moment military jet strikes bird and plummets to ground | US News

Dramatic cockpit video shows a military jet attacking a vulture before it plummets to the ground in Texas.

Newly released footage shows a large bird flying into a Navy T-45C Goshawk and being swallowed by one of its engines during an incident last September.

Sirens exploded and, in less than 30 seconds, the jet shot out of the sky, crashing into houses and bursting into flames.

“We’re trying to get to the runway,” a pilot’s voice said over the radio.

“Yes, we’re not going anywhere. We’re going,” the pilot said seconds later as the plane quickly plunged into the vicinity of Lake Worth below.

Both pilots, who were in a training exercise, attempted to eject from the plane seconds before it crashed.

One pilot was found badly burned in some power lines with his parachute, the other was found not far away.

Three houses were damaged, but fortunately no one on the ground was seriously injured.
