The moment a Blue Angel struck a bird at Vero Air Show

Here's some spectacular footage of one of the Blue Angels striking a bird during a performance at the Vero Beach Air Show last weekend.

Watch for Blue Angel #5 to appear and then notice the flames.

Bird strikes are common, but this was rather costly. Reports are the damage was set at $1 million.

Thankfully, the pilot was okay and able to bring the jet back to the airport. Another Blue Angel #5 was brought in for Sunday's performance, according to TCPalm.

The bird? Well, not so good news for it...
