Speaking Of Bird Strikes...

AirTran Flight Turns Around After FO Injured By Bird-Strike Induced Debris

Just as we were writing up a listing of all the recent bird strikes, ANN has learned that yet another case of "Shredded Tweat" has occurred. An AirTran Boeing 737-700, departing Philadelphia (Saturday) took a bird strike to the right side of the nose resulting in windshield damage that also injured the First Officer.

The FO suffered injuries as a result of windshield debris, resulting in a number of minor facial cuts and bruises. The aircraft notified PHL tower that they were returning to PHL about 10 minutes into the flight, landing without further incident. Bound for Atlanta, the flight carried 143 people, none of which were injured, according to AirTran spokesperson, Phyllis Van Istendal.

The flight was originally scheduled for an 1100 departure but a replacement flight was able to continue the flight at 1608, arriving in ATL at 1740, EDT.
