FORT MYERS, FL (WINK/CNN) - Scary moments for a Florida pilot after the windshield of his plane shattered in mid-air.

Rob Weber's on-board camera caught this video of a bird crashing into his cockpit in the sky over Fort Myers on Saturday.

The pilot managed to keep his cool during the airborne emergency.

He suffered a minor cut on his forehead, but refused medical assistance after a calm landing.

Weber told reporters he can't wait to get his windshield fixed so he can fly again.
