Birds crashing into planes can lead to catastrophic consequences. Only last week a bird flew into the nose cone of a plane with devastating consequences.
This week, there is video footage of a B737 Ryanair plane landing, whilst numerous birds collided with the plane and it’s engines. The video is quite something. Both engines apparently ingested birds simultaneously. This multiple bird strike incident (seagulls) took place on final approach to Barcelona El Prat Intl Airport (LEBL), Spain.
The dead bodies of about 20 birds had to be removed from the runway once the plane had landed safely.
