Have you ever heard about the pneumatic guns called "chicken cannons", which are used to fire dead chickens at aircraft airframes and cockpit canopies to check their resilience against collisions with birds?

Actually, the Canadians tested this out with some chickens sent from the US Corps of engineers. Their results were dramatic. Not only was the nose penetrated, but the chicken went clean through the cockpit and buried itself a foot and a half behind the pilots seat!
Several tests confirmed that a chicken shot from one of these devices would indeed completely disable any plane.

They sent their results back to the US. The engineers then studied the data and came back to the Canadians with this reply:

Did you thaw out the chickens first?
