An Envoy Embraer ERJ-145, registration N806AE performing flight MQ-3335 from Lexington,KY to Dallas Ft. Worth,TX (USA), was rotating for takeoff from Lexington Blue Grass Airport's runway 22 when a bird struck the aircraft. The crew continued takeoff, tower called operations to inspect the runway reporting tower believed the Embraer had just taken a bird strike at its landing gear and the bird was now injured about half way down the runway to the left of the runway in the grass. Upon contacting departure the crew reported they had received a bird strike just during rotation, they had no abnormal indications and were going to continue to Dallas. The aircraft continued to Ft. Worth Airport for a safe landing about 2:15 hours later.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Dallas about 16 hours after landing.

The feathered bird did not survive, although the runway inspection recovered the bird that had lost one of its wings in the encounter.
