RwandAir birdstrike plane back in service


The CRJ200 aircraft of RwandAir, which recently suffered a bird strike while on the take off run in Nairobi, has now returned to flight service, following repairs which have been carried out in Kenya.

The aircraft’s absence from the fleet caused some serious re-scheduling for RwandAir, but all services were eventually flown although at different timings from the published schedule, to accommodate booked passengers and serve demand.

It was pointed out by the airline that at no time during the incident were passengers in any danger, and they all disembarked normally at the time when the plane had taxied back to the terminal.
