Although the size of the bird is small, the speed of the plane is fast enough, especially when taking off.
The kinetic energy generated by the collision with the bird is enough to crash the engine.
Besides, she can even smell the burning smell.
It seems that the situation is not optimistic.
The unsmiling captain didn’t say anything at this time.
He just looked at the dashboard and after thinking about it, he finally made a decision.
“Contact the tower.
When a 0.45 kg bird collides with an aircraft at a speed of 800 kilometers per hour, it can produce an impact force of 153 kg.
Moreover, they can’t predict the size of the bird now and the speed of their plane is more than 800 kilometers per hour.
The return now is to ensure safety.
Although this kind of situation is rare, it is still within the controllable range.
At least the plane has another engine enough to guarantee the flight.
So Ruan Sixian did not panic and just sighed emotionally that she has been a co-pilot for more than half a year only but already encountered two abnormal situations.
One alternate landing, one return flight.
It’s really a bit of a rich resume.
But she didn’t expect that the real trouble was after the successful return flight.
The flight was originally planned to arrive in Xishi in three hours, and there were many transit passengers in this flight.
Although the captain had already informed the cabin half an hour after the decision to return, the emotions of the passengers were still a little difficult to control when the plane stopped at Jiangcheng International Airport two and a half hours later.
A flight attendant walked into the cockpit and said that a passenger was blocking the door of the cabin asking for an explanation.

The captain sighed, rubbed his shoulders, then stood up and said: “Let’s go have a look.”
When necessary, the two of them have to stand outside with the flight crew to apologize to the passengers.
It’s just that Ruan Sixian and the captain already heard a middle-aged man yelling before they even reached the cabin door.
His voice was very loud and there’s some crying in it too, completely drowning out other people’s explanations.
When the two of them went out, they saw a middle-aged man with a very strong build.
As the Purser of this flight, Ni Tong patiently bowed to him again and again, and explained: “Sir, please calm down.
This flight has encountered a bird strike, and the return is also for the sake of safety…”
“I don’t believe that a bird can crash a plane.
With such a big airplane, who are you fooling around!” The man interrupted Ni Tong loudly, “How can I calm down My father is dying in the hospital bed in his hometown, just waiting for me to see him for the last time.
This is you all preventing me from seeing my father for the last time…”
At this point, the man couldn’t control his emotions anymore and he started crying directly.
Ni Tong said again: “We will arrange supplementary flights as soon as possible.”
“Supplement, supplement! Can my father wait for that long!” The man could hardly keep standing and fell back against the cabin door.
When he saw two people in pilot uniforms coming out from behind, he immediately pointed at them and said, “I just knew that an old man and a woman were unreliable.
Whatever bird or sparrow is just excuses and the problems are actually in both of you! You all just want me to regret it for the rest of my life! Do you all have no father! This is you all wanting me not to see my father for the last time!”
Ruan Sixian paused when she heard this.
Turning her head to look at the captain, she also sees that his expression is not very optimistic.
The woman next to the man was his wife.
She was not as emotionally excited as him and couldn’t stand his gaffe too, so she opened the thermos bottle and handed it to him, “Have a drink first.
Is there any use by shouting here”
There was boiling hot water in the thermos and when she passed it to the man’s mouth, he calmed down a bit and blew at it.
His wife then turned to ask Ni Tong again: “When can we get a new flight arrangement then”
Ni Tong and the captain looked at each other, then she said with a frown: “This is still uncertain.
Based on past experiences, if it is fast, it can take off this afternoon, otherwise…”
