Turkish Airlines plane makes emergency landing after bird strike

A Turkish Airlines passenger jet made an emergency landing in Kenya on Friday after one of its engines sucked in a bird.

Flight TK 673, carrying 121 passengers and six crew, was leaving Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa for Istanbul when the bird strike happened at around 4 a.m.

The plane circled around Mombasa for an hour to empty its fuel tank before landing.

It was checked by technicians and took off later.
