Bird shatters windshield of pilot’s cockpit mid-air

Posted: Updated:
FORT MYERS, F.L. - Scary moments for a Florida pilot after the windshield of his plane shattered in mid-air.

Rob Weber's on-board camera caught this video of a bird crashing into his cockpit in the sky over Fort Myers on Saturday.

The pilot managed to keep his cool during the airborne emergency.  He suffered a minor cut on his forehead but refused medical assistance after a calm landing.  Weber told reporters he can't wait to get his windshield fixed so he can fly again.
