JetBlue plane makes emergency landing in New York after bird strike

24 Oct

JetBlue did not say if the plane suffered any damage. 

Although a relatively rare occurrence, there have been a number of bird strikes in recent months.

Last month, a Japan Airlines flight bound for New York made an emergency landing at a Tokyo airport due to engine trouble apparently caused by a bird strike.

And in July, a Kuala Lumpur-bound AirAsia X flight had to divert to Brisbane after a suspected bird strike.

Collisions between planes and birds are rarely dangerous as aircraft engines are designed to withstand such impacts.
