As this is relatively insignificant, am only posting in case Walter finds something objectionable, as the source is AP. :-) http://newsblog.projo.com/2009/07/baltimore-provi.html Baltimore-Providence flight safe after bird strikes engine 6:03 PM Tue, Jul 07, 2009 Alan Rosenberg LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) - Southwest Airlines officials say a flight headed to Providence, R.I., has returned safely to BWI airport after at least one bird struck an engine. It happened shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Southwest spokeswoman Whitney Eichinger says Flight 69 was carrying 137 passengers when the bird hit the engine. Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean says one or more birds hit the engine while it was taking off from runway 28. Eichinger says the plane landed safely back at BWI and there were no injuries. She said mechanics were checking the aircraft. Planes hit birds every day in the U.S. A bird strike was responsible for the landing of a jetliner in the Hudson River in New York last winter. Everyone survived.
