JetBlue 571 Birdstrike @KHPN

From AV Herald []

Incident: Jetblue E190 at Westchester on Apr 24th 2012, bird strike: A Jetblue Embraer ERJ-190, registration N178JB performing flight B6-571 from Westchester County,NY to West Palm Beach,FL (USA) with 54 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing out of Westchester's runway 16 when the crew reported they "hit two big geese", declared emergency, levelled off at 2000 feet and joined a right downwind for runway 16 about 7 minutes after departure.

Another example of great communication between a flight crew and a controller, considering the incident occurred right at a handoff too.

Clip is 2:13 long all from the KHPN Tower Feed.
