Shouldn't that be "Roadrunners"? :eyes:Mike200SEi said:Pheasants dont ride motorbikes.
They drive Plymouth Superbirds!!!
I think you're thinking of the gun designed by the british aircraft manufacturers. It was initially designed to test the strength of aircraft cockpits in the event of hitting a bird at supersonic speed. This was recently loaned to the irish who, no matter what they did couldn't get their aircraft to withstand the chickens fired by this gun. In a panic they emailed the designers of the gun with their data asking for advice in the strengthening of their cockpits. They received a one line reply....MG ZR Blue said:I know someone who works in designing aircraft parts who told me there is a sort of gun type machine that is used to fire chickens at leading edges to test their 'birdstrike' capabilities (I'm picturing something like you use to practice tennis serves...but with chickens, though I'm sure it's much cleverer than that) ... I wonder if MG R ever though of trying it? Never realised pheasants were that hard, would like to come across one on a motorbike (me not the pheasant!!)
