ILLINOIS -

A pilot managed to land his plane safely after a bird crashed through the aircraft's windshield in mid-air.

The incredible collision was caught on video thanks to a camera in the back of the pilot's Cessna aircraft.

In the video, you see a goose hit the windshield, sending glass flying inside the cockpit.

The pilot was able to keep calm and guide the plane back to the airport.

The goose died. The pilot and passenger were not injured.
