Busy day at KPBI - Possible bird strike and sick passenger.
« on: March 17, 2007, 03:58:23 PM »
Jan. 23, 2007 : USA1296 reports a possible bird strike and needs to return to the airport.  During this event JetBlue has a sick passenger and is trying to expedite getting to the gate.  All ended well and the most exciting event was afterward, with the high-speed runway inspection by the airport authority car at what looked like 100 mph!  The event lasted about 20 minutes but I have edited out dead time and unrelated communications.  The airport reopened promptly right after the runway check.  Good job done by all.  I believe the B737 sustained little or no damage and was flown out later in the day.
