Bird strike

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

An A320 was preparing to depart Los Angeles’ runway 24L en route to San Francisco. While the plane was taking off it suffered a bird strike in engine no.2. The aircraft stopped its climb at 2500 feet and returned to Los Angeles for a safe landing on runway 24L about 10 minutes after its departure.

The the right hand engine was badly damaged and required maintenance after landing.

A replacement plane was ready to depart two hours after the flight originally took off.
