Southwest jet makes emergency landing
December 29, 2005 -- A Southwest Airlines jet was forced to make an emergency landing at O'Hare Airport after colliding with a bird during takeoff from Midway.
Flight 111 was on its way to Philadelphia when a bird was apparently sucked into one of the 737's engines, causing it to shut down. Southwest officials say they decided to send the plane to O'Hare because it was a full flight and needed a longer runway.
The plane landed without incident. No one was hurt. A second Southwest Airlines jet was sent to O'Hare to take the stranded passengers on to Philadelphia.
