A.net friends,

Last night a GOL flight leaving GRU suffered engine problems. They are reporting it struck a bird after take off.

Here is a portuguese link

The flight arrived at MVD around 4hrs late, fortunately the captain managed to bring that bird down safely.

The press release from GOL states that the problem was due to a bird strike. But just minutes ago, an authority from Infraero(brazilian state company for airport infrastructure) revealed on national television that technicians from the company didn´t notice any sign of bird strike in the engine, also stating that the problem was due to mechanical failure.

Nice one Brazil... Going quickly to a new ICAO level in september...
