US Southwest jet lands safely after bird strike

RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) — A Southwest Airlines spokeswoman said a jet carrying 124 people struck a bird shortly after departing for Chicago from a North Carolina airport but safely returned without injuries.

Southwest's Whitney Eichinger told The Associated Press that its Boeing 737 reported the bird strike shortly after departure from Raleigh-Durham International Airport about 6 p.m. Monday and immediately returned.

She said the plane, with a five-person crew, shut down the affected engine before Flight 220 landed safely back at Raleigh-Durham and taxied to the gate.

Eichinger, speaking by phone from the Dallas headquarters of Southwest, said the passengers were all placed on other aircraft to Chicago.

She said the jetliner, which was destined for Chicago Midway International, has since been taken out of service for inspection and any necessary repairs.
