FORT MYERS, FLA. - Incredible footage of a Florida pilot's scary encounter with a bird, mid-flight.

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.
