Turkish airlines plane suffers bird strike. Looks like this year was really tough for Turkish Airlines. The Turkish air carrier has confronted few incidents in the past few months. The last one happened today, when a Turkish Airlines flight TK2004 from Istanbul to Nevşehir has endured huge damage from a bird strike during plane landing at the destination. The biggest damage was done for the Boeing's 737-800 nose cone and the wings.
AirLive web portal has received spectacular photos of the plane after a bird strike:
The incident comes almost two weeks after another, when Turkish Airlines plane travelling to Milan made an emergency landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport after one of its engines caught fire. Between other incidents that the Turkish airlines went through this year, is an emergency landing in March after a note with the word “bomb” on it was found in one of the plane’s toilets. In March air carrier Airbus A330 also slided off the runway, crashing plane's nose down in a grassy field.
