What happens when a drone hits an aircraft?

Damn! that was actually way worse than I thought it would be, although doesn’t seem enough to take the plane down.

Presumably it hitting the windscreen is ok as its made for it, but that would do a lot more damage to a smaller plane.

These incidents keep happening, its only a matter of time before theres a direct hit

Just a week after this near miss at Stansted, Gatwick airport is now closed due to drone sightings:
