JetStar grounds plane after bird strike

And so the war on birds continues. Budget carrier JetStar was forced to cancel one of its flights over the weekend after an aircraft was struck by a bird shortly before landing in the city of Vinh. In acordance with national regulations, the plane is grounded until it has been subject to a thorough mechanical inspection. In recent months, Vietnamese airports have struggled with the presence of birds near airports, as collisions with these creatures can cause serious problems to the plane’s engines.
