Another local station with video. MX staff with extra workload. SWA 718 went on to KHOU with another bird:

That it does, however I heard they had a replacement plane in Kci which could have been used in the replacement to Houston??

Flight was going to MCI to begin with. Outer pane was the one that shattered so there was no structural issue and no emergency was declared.

Flew out of Washington National alot decades ago. Lots of birds on the field due to close proximity of Potomac River. They used to fire off loud gun-like blasts to scare the birds off. I believe a goose in the engine might be worse than one on the windshield. Glad all landed well.
