EgyptAir Plane Collides With Bird at London Heathrow Airport, Delaying Flight

A bird flew into an EgyptAir plane as it was landing at London's Heathrow Airport, causing major damage to the nose of the plane and delaying flights.

An EgyptAir aircraft was struck by a bird as it was landing at London’s Heathrow Airport on Friday, reports Ahram Online. The bird flew into the plane’s front end, causing great damage to its nose, leaving a hole in the front of the plane.

The Boeing 737-800 was scheduled to take off back to Cairo on Friday at 10:30 PM, but it was delayed until the following day for maintenance and repairs at Heathrow Airport.

According to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), 90 percent of bird-aircraft collisions occur near airports. ICAO regulations stipulate that airports take measures to eliminate the risk of bird-aircraft collisions.

A US Federal Aviation Organisation report estimates wildlife-aircraft collisions in the United States at 99,530 incidents between 1990 – 2014, 8,659 out of which resulted in damage to the plane.
