An American Airlines Boeing 787-800, registration N805AN performing flight AA-88 from Beijing (China) to Dallas Ft. Worth,TX (USA), was climbing out of Beijing when the crew stopped the climb at 8100 meters at about 17:04L (09:04Z). The crew decided to return to Beijing for a safe landing on runway 01 about 45 minutes after departure. A large dent was seen at the radome.

Passenger Wangshiyu0818 reported "poor bird, poor radome".

Chinese Officials reported a bird strike, too.

The airline later reported that the radome was not reshaped by a bird strike but by hail when the aircraft encountered a hail storm while climbing out of Beijing.
