Birdstrike. The following is from this site: http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D96TTT780&show_article=1

SHANGHAI, March 15 (AP) - (Kyodo)β€”(EDS: UPDATING)

A Japan Airlines passenger plane with 222 people aboard made an emergency landing at Shanghai's Pudong airport Saturday after colliding with birds while taking off from another of the city's airports, but no one was injured, JAL said.

The Tokyo-bound flight JL8878 carrying 208 passengers and 14 crew members left Shanghai's Hongqiao airport at around 2 p.m. and landed at Pudong airport at 3:14 p.m. after abnormal vibration was detected in one of the four engines, the airline said.

An inspection conducted after the emergency landing found that birds had been sucked into the engine, it said.

About 90 percent of the passengers were Japanese and some of them took other flights to Japan later in the day.
