Sata's Birdstrike

This morning, Sata's CS-TKJ, making the S4 680 flight from Madeira to Copenhagen suffered several birdstrike impacts from a flock of birds during take off, affecting both engines (that kept working) and a cargo door, that opened in flight.

CS-TKJ at Madeira with the remains of another birdstrike (with a lot less consequences) back in 2005

The plane managed to return safely to the airport.
The passengers were put on a replacement A320 a few hours later.

The plane is at Funchal for damage evaluation

  1. A porta do porão abriu aparentemente devido ao embate dos pássaros no manípulo, porque o mesmo encontrava-se com sangue.

  2. O pássaro acertou na mouche....(pela última vez...)
    Ainda bem que tudo se resolveu sem consequências de maior (para passageiros e avião já que para a passarada a coisa não correu muito bem...)
