Sorry, I had to http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

In all seriousness, I hope the cow's alright. Cow tipping is serious business.

One would also think an impact with it would have disturbed a flight pattern and/or structural integrity of a light biplane more than it did...

Well, if it does get mooooved, please make sure that there are no ruminants of it left here or veal be sorry.

Since this happened, I heard old Bessy only stands in a corner of the field cowering.

I must say that I'm surprised the cow didn't knock the plane off course..or worse, they are such heavy animals (can be 500-700 kilos, or 1000lb-1500lb).

He must have hit it just right!??

They are so big, how could he miss it? Ooops, he didn't though ;-).

The pilot should have closed his cow flaps, that's probably why he didnt see it there, or maybe he was'nt cownting on it being there.
He should have just shot the dang thing with his .30 cowliber MGs.

It is amazing how it tumbles like that, a prop strike would explain it, though I am unsure if it's close enough to the prop or not...Here's a slightly better version of the video.

Good point major, but I think the wide angle lens they used caused a visual deception and it looks like the cow is too far away for a prop-strike. Also, if they hit the cow with the left wing I think they would have been in a world of hurt and maybe a catostrophic situation, if not at-least ground looped and ended up in pretty bad shape as compared to how they ended up in the vid. They just came to a stop, as if the engine was dead. Just my opinion.

That's not just a twitch, it fully deflects by the look of it:
