There is setting on our back porch a chunk of glass we believe to be a
wind shield from a large aircraft.  It is about 2 inches thick, and is
made up of several layers of glass and plastic.

At first we thought it was bullet glass from an armored car but the
angles of the edges suggesed that it came from a more angled installation.
It was here when we bought the place, BTW.  And that is all we know.
