Tragedy averted: Bird strike hits Air Peace aircraft, flight diverted

The management of Air Peace on Monday said its flight P47159 Owerri to Lagos on November 22, had a bird strike, few minutes after take-off.

The spokesperson, Mr. Stanley Olisa, said this in a statement in Lagos on Monday.

“This seriously affected the parameters of one of the engines and the Pilot-in-Command had to divert to Port Harcourt and safely landed the aircraft while the passengers disembarked normally.

“We have dispatched a rescue team and aircraft to airlift the passengers of the affected flight.

“Air Peace is committed to the highest standards of safety and will never compromise on this,” the statement said.
