Holiday plane 'holed' by bird strike


Holidaymakers last night spoke of their terror after a plane, bound for Glasgow Airport, suffered a dramatic bird-strike. The Daily Record newspaper reports that the incident left a hole 'the size of a football' in its nose cone.

Around 230 passengers were on the Thomas Cook Airlines flight bound from Tenerife to Glasgow yesterday afternoon. One passenger told the newspaper: 'It was about 5 minutes into the flight when we felt an impact. The crew started getting out the lifejackets, it was pretty scary.'

The pilot immediately returned to Tenerife's Reina Sofia airport. A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said: 'The flight came out of Tenerife and hit a flock of birds. It circled for a while, then returned.' The passenger added: 'When we got off, there was a hole the size of a football in the plane's nose.'

A replacement part was being flown out to the stricken aircraft. Thomas Cook have put passengers up in hotels in Tenerife in the meantime.
