A Swiss International Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration HB-IOM performing flight LX-2114 from Zurich (Switzerland) to Malaga,SP (Spain), was climbing out of Zurich's runway 32 when the crew reported a bird strike causing vibrations at the landing gear and subsequently also reporting the right hand engine was vibrating severely. The aircraft stopped the climb at 5000 feet, the crew assessed they were too heavy for the active runway 28. A runway inspection revealed bird remains on the runway, the runway needed cleaning. The aircraft positioned for an approach to runway 34, the crew advised it would be a normal landing, and the aircraft landed safely about 40 minutes after departure.

A local resident reported he heard an unusual engine noise never heard before, like a lawnmower.
