Delta MD88 at Raleigh/Durham on Nov 16th 2014, bird strike
Last Update: November 19, 2014 / 23:16:48 GMT/Zulu time
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.
