Bird strike destroys engine as plane lands

AN engine on a China Eastern Airlines plane was destroyed after it was hit by a bird while the plane was landing at Hongqiao International Airport yesterday.

The MU5396 flight was from Zhengzhou in Henan Province. The flight crew handled the incident properly, China Eastern said, and the plane landed safely. Last Tuesday, a bird hit a China Eastern plane soon after it took off from Taipei's Taoyuan International Airport. The plane had to return to the airport.
