    I wonder if the Sabre engine in Skylon is able to handle bird strikes ?

      Theoretically it needs to be tested at twice maximum speed for civilian applications. It could be difficult accelerating a chicken to Mach 11. Additionally not many birds fly at 150,000ft.

        I think Sully would appreciate if the turkeys were shot at it even M4...somewhere at Mont Blanc region.
