Is that universally true, Craig?

It is often the case, I’d agree, but in this instance the radome does note seem to have been punctured and the high speed of the encounter could have scourged the external evidence. I’ve seen the aftermath of two bird strikes, one had obvious blood and feathers, the other did not.

On the other hand, this damage could also have been caused by some other impact.
