Bird-Hit Brussels Airlines Plane Returns to Brussels
Thomas Cook flight FQ-816 had to return and make an emergency landing in Brussels, Belgium, on February 7th.
The Airbus A319-100 plane, operated by Brussels Airlines, took off for Marrakech, Morocco, but had to return shortly afterwards after one of its engines ingested a bird.
The plane landed uneventfully. All 140 passengers remained safe.
The airline arranged a replacement aircraft for the passengers.
