Virgin Australia 737 declares PAN after bird strike
« on: October 20, 2017, 08:42:16 AM »
October 20 2017: A Virgin Australia Boeing 737 departing Melbourne for Brisbane (VOZ319) on RWY27 reportedly struck an eagle carrying a rabbit on takeoff. The crew declared a PAN after cockpit indications showed excessive vibration on the number one engine. ATC vectored the aircraft for a RWY16 approach where an uneventful landing was carried out.
In the attached recording the initial PAN call was extracted from the YMML feed, all following transmissions were recorded from my own scanner. The controller's transmissions can't be heard due to weak reception/distance.
