At 170 miles per hour, Rob Weber's flight into Fort Myers' Page Field became a shocking flurry of feathers and broken windshield.

A camera on board his Piper Saratoga captured the moments a bird struck his windshield, sending pieces of plastic and electronics into his face.

The video shows Weber keeping his cool, even after he notices he's bleeding from the forehead. He takes the controls and makes a calm landing.

Weber tells WINK News, it was a minor cut and he refused medical service, but he feels lucky he wasn't knocked out. He was the only one on board at the time, so it was up to him to land the plane.
