An American Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration N933AM performing flight AA-2270 from Tampa,FL to Dallas Ft. Worth,TX (USA), was climbing out of Tampa's runway 01R when the crew requested to level off, remain on tower frequency and receive vectors advising they had a possible bird strike, they needed to check out things. The crew subsequently advised a bird had impacted the right hand wing at the leading edge while they were climbing through about 400 feet AGL, there was no malfunction, they'd return to Tampa nonetheless and would be landing normally. The aircraft landed safely on Tampa's runway 01L about 25 minutes after departure.

A replacement A321-200 registration N139AN reached Dallas with a delay of 8:15 hours.
