05-Jul-11 N109TK Agusta A109C Kew, UK

While cruising at 150 kt at 750 ft agl a bird struck and shattered the left windshield. The commander, seated in the left seat, suffered minor injuries so the co-pilot took control and made a successful emergency landing. The Agusta A109C’s windshield is not designed to withstand bird strikes and the regulations do not require it to do so.
