jetBlue JetBlue flight 111 heading to Chicago O’Hare International Airport had to return and make an emergency landing at Logan International Airport due to bird strike.

The incident happened shortly after the plane took off. The pilots then turned back towards Logan where they made an uneventful emergency landing at about 8 a.m. on May 27.

Massport Spokesman Matthew Brelis said that a bird has been ingested into the engine of the plane. An analysis of the remains of bird will determine its species.

All the passengers were evacuated, and JetBlue offered them other flight options to Chicago.
