On Friday of last week, a Loganair flight with 40 passengers and three crew members aboard was forced to circle back to Sumburgh Airport (LSI) after a flock of birds collided with the aircraft.
According to flyers, flames could be seen out the aircraft’s windows near the left engine.
“Safety is always our first priority, and as always, our pilots responded immediately and appropriately to the warning that they received on the flightdeck following the bird strike – an eventuality for which every pilot is extensively trained,” said a spokesperson for Loganair.
