Delta Flight Returns to Airport After Bird Strike


Monday, November 02, 2009


PHOENIX Authorities say a Delta Air Lines flight headed to Utah has safely returned to Phoenix after one or more birds hit the aircraft.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says Flight 1232 took off from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport around 8:40 a.m. Monday on its way to Salt Lake City.

He says the MD-90 hit one or more birds "a considerable distance" from the airport, and the pilot declared an emergency. The plane landed at Sky Harbor at 9:01 a.m.

Delta spokesman Anthony Black says 127 passengers and five crew members were aboard. No injuries were reported.

Gregor says bird strikes happen daily and pilots are trained to deal with them.

In January, a US Airways flight crash-landed in the Hudson River after hitting a flock of birds over New York. All 155 people on board were pulled to safety.

Naw birds are the norm. But damn scary to get one sucked into the mains. Time to turn the big bird around which takes 20 miles, and then get it in a glide slope which takes another ten miles, and set her down.

Flying airliners is 99% boredom, and 1% shear terror!
Fishing and skiing keeps me a little sane.

Birds are the "norm" Cover Up. In this one...as quite often...there were no feathers nor bird found. Just one big gapping hole blown inwards. The would take one Big Bird to do!!
