Very detailed photo; you can even see the red dot's of the bird on the leading edge of the wing. I only wonder what has happened exactly

Look at the top of the wing... sure they felt it, ouch!

How does a birdstrike equal this?

Wow looks like the lesft main landing gear went right through the wing, that must have been some hard landing. last time i checked ostriches don't fly?

I believe she was on final approach when she got a single birdstike in one of the engines, pilots decided to make a go around, but then almost immediateley she got another multiple birdstrike including at least one bird in the other engine; so now both engines were flamed out and completing the go-around was no longer an option, so they had to put her down straight away and it was pretty rough.
The left landing gear was put under such big stress that it pierced through the wing, as you can see, and on other pics of this unlucky aircraft you can see multiple bloody spots (on the nose, on the leading edges left and right) where those birdsmet their Waterloo.

The plane was on a normal approach when first flock of birds struck.the pilot elected to go around but then hit another flock of birds loosing the rewmaining engine. He then successfully landed on the remainder of the runway . Great job

Very lucky outcome. To answer the question below, the birdstrikes disabled both engines, while at a low altitude/low airspeed. The crew did a hell of a job getting this plane on the ground safely.

Replacement parts shouldn't be a problem for these dime-a-dozen types! :p probably a write-off with rear spar damage

Great photo but I think 'hard landing' is an understatement
