    I would imagine it would...

    Imagine a 170 to 200 pound bag of bones hitting your wing at 300 to 400 miles per hour...which is basically what is happening.

    If 40 mph is enough to catapult you through a car windshield, maybe 300 to 400 miles per hour would be enough to shear off a wing.

    Just my guess...

    If you cant hit a man under canopy, how were you able to shoot his AC down in the first place?

    Have you ever seen what a 9 pound bird can do to a 747?

    Thanks Amanda, great response.

    Also, a spell checker would help some flight simmers, maybe.

    sure it would rip off a wing 160-220lb pilot?

    Look what a 5lb bird does to an aircraft






    Now if the germans only invented a hawk launching cannon to replace the 108 and 103 cannon maybe germany would have won the war

    It's not a matter of where he GRIPS it, it's a simple weight ratio!
