Birds damage airliner engine, flight delayed

Date Posted: 1998-05-09

Some passengers heading from Miyako Island to Naha City experienced a slight delay on Sunday after damage was discovered on the plane they were to board. The pilot of Japan Transocean Airline Flight 509 radioed ahead to the Miyako control tower shortly after take-off from Naha, reporting that he had noticed some unusual things with one of the plane's engine. He suspected that some birds had been sucked into the plane's engine but was confident he could transport his 89 passengers to Miyako without incident.

After an uneventful flight, the plane landed at the Miyako Island airport and when mechanics inspected the engines, they found that birds had indeed flown into the engine and some turbine blades had been broken in one of the engines. Passengers experienced a brief delay before they were transferred to another plane while repairs were made.
