Video: A flock of birds ingested in airplane engine

Video footage has been released of an Airbus A330-200 beloging to Swedish charter carrier Novair suffering a birdstrike last week.

A passenger onboard the A330 was filming the right hand wing on climb-out from Sarafovo airport near the Black Sea resort of Burgas in Bulgaria last Friday en route to Stockholm Arlanda when the aircraft flew through a flock of storks. Several of the birds were ingested into the engine, as the video from Swedish newspaper Expressen shows.

The aircraft continued its flight and landed safely with only minor damage to the wing.
