Morten Køpke got hit by a big bird while cruising at low altitude in 860 knots (1.600 km/h) in his F-16 Fighting Falcon. The bird smashed the hood destroying his helmet visor together with two of the security straps holding Morten’s parachute pack. Being unconscious for a few dramatic seconds, Morten managed to pull the trigger handle and got shot out. He came to conscious again after hanging upside-down in his parachute before he could land properly. An F-16 plane worth $ 10 million exploded and Morten saw death at close range.
