Flight deck window strength.


Recommended Posts

I once got a center right window that the heating elements had broken. I set

it up at my local shooting range with some paper targets behind it. 5 shots

with a 9mm P, 3 with a .45ACP, a 2 with a .357 Desert Eagle didn't penetrate,

but made me think seriously about being crew. The paper targets behind were

shredded!!! Hail and birdstrikes shouldn't be too much of an issue, as mostly

the window will either deflect or the whole panel will be pushed in; small diameter

high energy objects turn the inner layer into a shrapnel storm of note.
