A Delta Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-88, registration N967DL performing flight DL-1774 from Raleigh/Durham,NC to Atlanta,GA (USA), was in the initial climb out of Raleigh/Durham's runway 23R when the aircraft flew through a flock of geese and ingested a number of birds into an engine (JT8D). The crew stopped the climb at 3000 feet and returned to Raleigh/Durham for a safe landing on runway 23R about 9 minutes after departure.

Raleigh/Durham stopped all departures and approaches while the aircraft was airborne, then reassigned all arrivals and departures to runway 23L due to the right hand side being blocked by the emergency.

A passenger reported that shortly after becoming airborne a loud bang was heard and the smell of burnt hair developed in the cabin. The captain announced an air conditioning unit had failed which was met with disbelief by the passengers. After landing the captain announced the aircraft had flown through a flock of geese and lost an engine.

A replacement MD-88 reached Atlanta with a delay of 5 hours.
