A plane was about to land in Bologna, Italy, when it hit a group of cranes. Some of the birds were sucked into the aircraft’s right-hand engine, while others hit the cabin windshield. The accident occurred with Ryanair flight FR1194 last Wednesday (24/11).
A video posted to the “Breaking Aviation News” Twitter page shows a Boeing 787-800 landing with flames coming out of the engine. In the photos posted in the same profile, it is possible to see parts of the animals associated with the engine.
Although the pilots’ eyesight was impaired due to the crash of the cranes, the team was able to land safely at Guglielmo Marconi International Airport and no one was hurt.
According to the English newspaper “The Independent”, bird accidents represent losses of more than one billion dollars annually in the form of damage and delays to airlines and usually occur shortly before landing.
In October, the same airline faced a similar problem: a flight leaving England for the Canary Islands, had to make an emergency landing, still in English territory, after a bird crashed into the engine. A spokesman for the airline said at the time that the plane landed normally.
