American Airlines Flight Left With Massive Two-Foot Dent After Being Struck By Birds

An American Airlines plane has been left with a huge two-foot dent after being struck by a bird.

The Airbus 321 set off from Seattle yesterday but shortly afterwards the pilot got in touch with air traffic controllers.

They said: “Looks like we hit some birds after takeoff, we’re gonna need to go back and have the airplane looked at.”

In a statement, American Airlines said: “American Airlines 2310, from Seattle-Tacoma to Dallas/Fort Worth, returned to SeaTac due to a bird strike, which struck the nose of the aircraft.

“The Airbus A321, with 150 passengers and six crew, landed safely and taxied to the gate.

“Our maintenance team is currently evaluating the aircraft. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience, and are working to get them to Texas as soon as possible.”

A spokesman also confirmed that the dent in the plane was caused by the collision with a bird.
