Bird-hit Mumbai flight forced to land

Rajkot: The Rajkot-Mumbai Air India flight was forced to land immediately after take-off following a bird hit.

Officials said that the flight was cancelled on Sunday evening due to the incident and the operation is likely to remain affected on Monday too if the aircraft is unable to take off.

The flight was supposed to take off at 6.56 pm but it was delayed and it took off at 7.30 pm. However, a sudden bird hit damaged one engine of the aircraft, which forced the pilot to land the flight immediately. There were a total 103 people in the flight including crew members.

For now, the aircraft is in the parking area. Flight operations are likely to be affected as only one flight can take off from the airport.

This was the last flight to operate from the airport on Sunday.
