Tough Old Bird

And I do mean the Dash 8!

 

Horror on board flight to Birmingham as bird strike destroys plane propeller but pilot continues to fly for an hour to destination on just ONE ENGINE

Passengers were left terrified after a plane lost one of its propellers in a bird strike but continued with the rest of the hour-long flight on just one engine.

The Flybe service had just taken off from Guernsey for Birmingham when startled travellers heard a loud bang on the left side of the aircraft.

They looked out and saw the front cone of the prop had been smashed and the remains of a bird could be seen on the jagged edge.

I would be willing to bet that Flybe has a Captains opening!

Yes, I think the captain is going to be in trouble.  I guess this was the last flight of the day for him and he wasn't going to be delayed.
