Southwest Kansas City 2/24/22, bird strikes
« on: February 28, 2022, 10:17:49 AM »
A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 flight  from Kansas City,MO to Dallas Love,TX was rotating for takeoff from Kansas City's runway 01L when the aircraft received a number of bird strikes onto nose and both engines (CFM56). The aircraft stopped the climb at 9000 feet reporting engine vibrations, advised they did want to remain close to the airport, needed emergency equipment on stand by and returned to Kansas City for a safe landing on runway 01L about 22 minutes after departure.
