Caption Contest #47 Winner - Beware Of BIG Birds!

 Wow, not only is this pic from an amazing true story in the development of the Super Guppy, but the winning caption was the first one submitted right after I put the post up on Monday morning. And then, the voting wasn't even close, this stellar caption from @RayRod59 was the easy winner - congrats! I hope you've got Oshkosh 2011 in your schedule so you can claim your tasty bacon sandwich prize

 As always, thanx to everyone who submitted a caption and to all who voted. We most likely will be right back at it on Monday morning, and watch for a detailed story about what happened to the Super Guppy to cause all that crumpled aluminum... and no, it was a really big bird!

The caption could not have been more appropriate. I'd love the hear how the events unfolded after the bird strike.
