Bird strike disrupts Palma to Madrid flight

PASSENGERS on Iberia flight IB3921 to Madrid which departed from Palma at 9.40pm yesterday (November 10) were taken aback as 10 minutes into the flight, the pilot announced that they were returning to Palma due to technical problems.

Upon landing, it was explained that there had been a bird strike in one of the engines which had to be checked for damage and passengers were initially advised that there would be a delay but the flight would operate.

Eventually it was decided that it couldn’t take off again that night and there were long queues at the Iberia desk to either obtain a taxi (for those with homes on the island) or hotel accommodation.

The airline made arrangements for passengers to travel on other airlines the following day.
