American Airlines Bird Strike
Burbank, twenty minutes from my home!
On Jan 26, 2013, an American Airlines Boeing 738 flight took off from John Wayne Airport en route to Dallas, and suffered a bird strike (or more properly, three of them), and diverted to Los Angeles International Airport where they made a safe landing.
Impact with the birds occurred around 7:30 a.m. (Does that make them early birds?)
They landed safely around 8:00 a.m.
