Plane hits cow while trying to land

It was plane versus cow -- and the plane got the worst of it.

British pilot Rob Wotton was attempting to make an emergency landing southwest of London when he ran into trouble.

It was in the form of a cow that wandered in the way of Wotton's 1930s Tiger Moth biplane.

YouTube video shows the bovine getting knocked to the ground by the plane's lower wing.

A report on the Sept. 14 accident says the cow was "apparently uninjured."

Wotton adds it's the first time he's hit a cow in his 22 years of flying.
