WN69 BWI-PVD bird strike

As this is relatively insignificant, am only posting in case Walter

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.
