A Yeti Airlines aircraft made an emergency landing after being hit by a bird soon after takeoff from Bharatpur Airport on Sunday.

The aircraft had only reached above Rijal chowk of Bharatpur after taking off at 4:10pm when its propellers hit a bird, and was returned back to the same airport for an emergency landing, according to Yeti Air Bharatpur Manager Rajesh Singh.

The aircraft with call sign 9N AIS was carrying 22 passengers from Bharatpur to Kathmandu. Captain Ramesh Shrestha decided to make an emergency landing after realising that the plane had hit a bird.

The aircraft landed safely with no damage whatsoever, Singh said.

A second aircraft of Yeti Airlines flew the passengers to Kathmandu. Meanwhile, engineers are examining the aircraft to determine the damage caused and necessary repair. RSS
