Plane Diverted To LAX After Bird Strike

LOS ANGELES (CBS 2) — A plane has been diverted to LAX for an emergency landing after a bird strike.

The plane,  Alaska Air flight 707 leaving LAX for Vancouver, has reportedly been dumping fuel.

It is not known if the birds struck the plane’s windshield or engines.

Justin Jaeger reporting in Sky 9 said there was no visible damage to the plane.

The plane was reportedly taking off at the time of the strike.

A bird strike led to the “Miracle on the Hudson” January 15, 2009 when Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger landed his striken US Airways plane on the Hudson River.
