Bird strike Leads to Emergency Landing at Lagos Airport
On March 28, 2013, a Royal Air Maroc Boeing 737-800 en route from Lagos to Casablanca spent ten minutes in the air after a bird strike on takeoff.
126 were aboard when ten minutes into the flight, there was a bird strike that disabled an engine. The plane circled for about forty minutes to burn off fuel before attempting a return.
Pilots returned to make a safe landing at Murtala Muhammed Airport
