What Happens when you run into a Hailstorm at 35,0000 Feet?

This Boeing 727 knows.

The Boeing 727 BAX aircraft flight 705BX encountered severe weather over Alberta Canada. The aircraft was cruising at 35,000 feet when it encountered tennis ball sized hail. The pictures below show some of the damage. All landing lights were destroyed, as was the radar.

Amazingly, the engines continued to work. The crew was forced to make a "blind" emergency landing.

OUCH!! I can't imagine what it would have done to a Cessna 172! Although, you won't find many Cessnas @ 35,000'...not props anyway.
