Safe emergency landing at SJ airport after bird strike
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Passengers onboard a flight that had to make an emergency landing at San Jose Airport Friday morning have a harrowing story to tell after experiencing frightening moments shortly after takeoff.
American Airlines Flight 1118 was bound for Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and took off at 6:20 a.m. from San Jose, airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said.
However, minutes later the aircraft struck a bird, disabling the plane's No. 2 engine, Barnes said.
The plane was able to safely turn around and land at the San Jose airport at 6:42 a.m. with no injuries reported on board, Barnes said.
The plane was able to taxi to a gate and its passengers will be accommodated on another flight to their destination, according to Barnes.
