MOMBASA – Reuters
A Turkish Airlines jet carrying 121 passengers and six crew made an emergency landing in Kenya on Oct. 13 after one of its engines sucked in a bird, police said.
Flight TK 673 was leaving Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa for Istanbul when the bird strike happened at around 4 a.m.
The plane circled around Mombasa for an hour to empty its fuel tank before it landed.
No one was injured. The plane was checked by technicians and took off again.
