An American Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration N901NN performing flight AA-1303 from Mexico City (Mexico) to Miami,FL (USA), was on final approach to Miami's runway 09. While being handed off to tower the aircraft encountered a number of bird strikes while flying through a flock of birds, the crew reported both engines were operating stable though they believed the right hand engine took a bird and they were smelling it. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on runway 09 about 2 minutes later.

A borescopic examination revealed no damage to the core of the right hand engine, the aircraft received dents to the right hand engine inlet requiring replacement of the inlet and dents at the right hand slats and flaps requiring replacement of those slats and flaps. The aircraft is estimated to return to service on Oct 26th.
