WATCH: The US military released footage of a training plane that hit a bird and crashed


The US military has released dramatic cockpit footage of the moment a training plane collided with a bird and crashed in Texas. Watch above: Cockpit video shows a military plane hitting a bird before crashing. The video, released a year after the incident on September 19, 2021, was taken from a US Navy T-45C Goshawk aircraft as an instructor and student approached the runway during a routine training exercise. Suddenly, a large bird comes into view and swoops down on the plane. An alarm goes off in the background and someone in the cockpit says ’emergency, we’re trying to get to the runway’ before the plane descends and they state ‘we won’t make it; we’re going to eject.” After they ejected, the plane crashed into a suburb of Lake Worth, Texas, damaging three houses. Although the aviators were injured, there were no fatalities.
