Another Myanmar flight forced to land after bird strike

YANGON, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- One more flight from a Myanmar airline was forced to return to Yangon International Airport Sunday afternoon after a bird strike, local media reported.

The flight, which belongs to private-run Air Kanbawza, hit some birds at a height of about 900 meters over the city of Bago at 12: 40 p.m. local time after taking off from Yangon, leaving its left wind screen slightly damaged, Yangon Police was quoted as saying.

The aircraft was carrying 28 people, including five crews, and no one was injured in the incident. The passengers were shortly transferred to another aircraft to continue their journey.

The bird strike happened four days after a similar incident, which saw a flight from the Myanmar Airways International (MAI) hit some birds over the same city shortly before landing.

Wednesday's incident left the plane with a one-square-foot hole at its head. The plane, carrying 128 people including eight crews, also landed safely at the Yangon International Airport without casualties.
