A Royal Air Force (RAF) Airbus A400M had had its flight deck ‘punctured’ by a bird strike whilst on operations Getafe Air Base in Spain.

Images shared on the internet show blood & feathers both outside and inside the flightdeck area and a a large hole in the fuselage.

No one (well, apart from the bird!) was injured in the incident and the aircraft landed safely.
