Foxbat & a near miss with a buzzard

BuzzardSubscriber James Pearce sent me this link to a video (click on the picture) which caught a near miss with a buzzard while flying his Foxbat in the UK – I didn’t know such large birds existed in good old Blighty! If you’re like me, you’ll probably miss it the first time round but we get a couple of slo-mo replays later. Makes you realise just how fast a bird strike can happen.

Please be warned – there are some quite strong expletives from the pilot, so maybe make sure there aren’t any very young ears listening.

Thanks also to James for his previous video on going around in the Foxbat.

  1. We see Eagles all the time in the bush. Beware-where there is one there are usually two. But they have VERY good eyesight and reflexes. James actually turned in to the bird….Pauline
