On the 76 that crashed....the glass windshield had been replaced with a lighter non-glass windscreen. As I recall there was an issue with the Testing of the replacement as well as a reduced resistance to a bird strike.

Also, the wreckage was pressure washed and much of the bird remains were removed as a result.

That was an interesting event and generated much discussion here at Rotorheads.


PHI reached a Settlement in the Civil Suits that stemmed from the crash of the S-76C that collided with the Red Tailed Hawk.
