Aircraft lands safely following bird strike

05 July 2010

A light aircraft, en route from Alderney, suffered a bird strike approximately 1 mile out from Jersey Airport on Saturday 3 July 2010.

The bird came in direct contact with the aircraft windscreen which shattered on impact. The remains of the bird and the windshield entered the aircraft cockpit and the pilot suffered minor lacerations to his face from the broken windshield.

The aircraft landed safely at 5.18pm and the pilot, who was the only passenger onboard, advised Jersey Airport of the incident upon arrival. He was treated by the airport’s Rescue & Fire Fighting Service for his injuries.

Both the Director of Civil Aviation and the Air Accident Investigation Board have been advised of the incident.
