    The snow in the mid-Atlantic region kept many planes from taking off at Bradley International Aiport in Windsor Locks.

    A Spirit Airlines flight from Fort Lauderdale to New York City was forced to return to South Florida following a bird strike.

    Spirit officials say Flight 758 landed safely Monday morning at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

    There was no immediate information on the number of passengers on board or the extent of damage to the plane, which was headed to LaGuardia Airport.
