Migrating birds declare war on Cseries/A220

Wed Sep 26, 2018 8:54 am

The airline confirms that on September 24, an aircraft had hit the birds shortly before landing from Vienna to Riga (YL-CSB).

The collision occurred over the Gulf of Riga during the BT432 flight. After the incident, the airplane continued to land at Riga airport in accordance with standard security procedures, informs Alise Briede, the head of the corporate communications company of the airline.

After landing at the airport, the company decided to deploy an in-depth technical inspection of the airplane.

another bird-strike occurred with YL-CSC on 25th of September "performing flight BT-629 from Riga (Latvia) to Milan Malpensa (Italy), was in the initial climb out of Riga's runway 18 when the crew requested to stop climb at 4000 feet advising they had receivd a bird strike. Soon after the crew decided to return to Riga to have the aircraft inspected. The aircraft landed on Riga's runway 36 about 15 minutes after departure.

This happens every s i n g l e day. Not trying to be grumpy but I don't think a thread is needed for a daily occurrence and an aircraft doing what it was meant to do. Kill the bird and fly on

There's been a cow strike at 1,083 feet, so it's only a matter of time

I believe this is the first Cseries/A220 bird strike to occur outside of testing during normal operations. Worthy of a thread.

Those pesky Finnish flying cows...

What does it say about me that I'm envisioning a Monte Python skit and chuckling ten minutes later?

Quite a few parts to be repaired.

Definitely, there's bound to be more cow encounters at +333.33 ft. elevation. :wink2:

DAYEM! I missed half the joke! :-(

So tomorrow's front page headlines at British tabloids will read: "Latvia says that the plane was attacked by Russian-trained killer birds as a revenge for not buying SSJs". And by evening, Mrs. Prime Minister will declare that "It's highly likely that the Latvian plane was attacked by GRU pigeons".

Do you know about any specific incident of a plane colliding with a cow in India? You may want to enlighten the rest of us.....

I do know someone who hit a cow (elk) in a private aircraft at a rural airfield.

It ran in front of him during landing. Fortunately he walked away. His aircraft was totaled, but I think the local food bank was able to salvage some of the elk.

Only tomorrow YL-CSB will be back on air.
It's been 16 days after collision with migrating cows.


YL-CSC was up in the air after 2 days. Lack of additional spare nose/parts or some deeper inspection from bombardier/airbus before flying YL-CSB again?

Are these ones below close enough for your liking?

A Spicejet Boeing 737-800, registration VT-SGK performing flight SG-622 from Surat to Delhi (India) with 151 passengers and 6 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from Surat Gujarat's runway 04 in darkness at 19:06L (13:36Z) when three stray buffalos entered the runway. One of the buffalos was hit by the aircraft's left hand engine (CFM56), the crew rejected takeoff at about 80 knots after the collision and brought the aircraft to a safe stop about abeam the airport terminal, half way down the runway. The passengers disembarked onto the runway via stairs and were taken to the terminal. No injuries occured to humans, the buffalo was killed, the aircraft sustained substantial damage to left hand engine and left hand fuselage including damage to a static port and punctures to the fuselage skin.

A Spicejet de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration VT-SUC performing flight SG-2458 from Mumbai to Jabalpur (India) with 49 passengers and 4 crew, was landing at Jabalpur at 19:30L (14:00Z) when a herd of 30-40 boars strayed onto the runway causing the aircraft to collide with the animals. The aircraft went off the runway and came to a stop on soft ground with the left main and nose gear collapsed. There were no injuries, the aircraft received substantial damage. Three dead boars were recovered from the runway.

The airline reported a herd of boars strayed onto the runway, the captain attempted to apply emergency brakes, the aircraft went left off the runway. There were no injuries, the damage is being assessed.

The incident was serious enough for the aircraft to be written off.

If an AS 737 can have a midair with a salmon, it's possible for a A220 to have a midair with a cow!

You are more likely to hit a pig than a cow. The pigs fly backwards, so find it difficult to look where they are going!
