Weekend Bird Strikes Force 2 Jets to Return to JFK
Authorities say bird strikes forced two planes to return to Kennedy Airport shortly after takeoff over the weekend.
A JetBlue flight bound for the Dominican Republic about 3:30 p.m. Saturday returned to the airport without incident after hitting some birds.
According to the FAA, a second JetBlue plane hit a bird Sunday morning after it took off for Nassau in the Bahamas.
In both incidents, passengers resumed their trips on different planes.
