Transat A333 at Athens on Oct 8th 2022, bird strikes into both engines
Last Update: October 13, 2022 / 19:56:18 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft is still on the ground in Athens about 5 days after landing back.
On Oct 13th 2022 the Canadian TSB reported the aircraft hit a flock of birds while accelerating through 100 KIAS during takeoff. Shortly after becoming airborne the crew noticed excessive vibrations on the #2 engine (Trent 772) prompting the crew to return to Athens. The TSB stated: "After inspection, maintenance found damage to both engines due to birds passing through engines' core."
