Saw this on Yahoo today...

LONDON – A British pilot said he ran into an unusual hazard while making an emergency landing — a cow. Rob Wotton said he was trying to land his World War II-era Tiger Moth after the engine stalled just after takeoff southwest of London on Sept. 14. He was about to touch down in a field when the animal wandered into his way.
Video of the event on YouTube shows the brown-and-white cow being knocked to the ground by the plane's lower left wing. The two-seater was damaged but landed safely.
An accident report said the cow was "apparently uninjured."
Wotton said he might paint a cow on the plane to mark the event.
He says: "I have to say it is the first cow I have ever hit in 22 years' flying."

yeah i saw that one too. Well, it wouldn't be the first time. Remember the photos of that tribe that had "never been seen by the modern world" and then it turned out it was staged and it was a very ordinary tribe. lol
