i hate these misplaced "real time" videos, but they were lucky this road sign wasn't injested.........go figure.....

 

 

Yeah, tough or not Im not sure any jet could take completely ingesting a 10ft road sign and keep flying.

I have a couple of books in which planes hit things and managed to not only keep flying but make it back to base.

I think the Kagero P47 books talk about a German soldier who had his head taken clean off by a P47 wing. Another P47 had clipped an electric? pole. IIRC it left a massive amount of damage but the plane made it back.

In another book on typhoons(?) apparently one plane hit a wave as they were returning from a mission. One pilot looked to the side and saw his mate disappear in a plume of spray and salt water...only to see him lurch back into the air and contine flying. Prop was bent to hell but plane made it back.

Same thing happens in one of the Ukrainian/Russia shot down videos posted on here earlier.  Russian(?) chopper gets popped and the guy below and behind him freaks and flies straight into the water only to emerge from the impact and keep on keepin’ on like he’d trained for it.  Must have been his lucky day.
