An Air Peace said that its aircraft flight P 47154, which departed Lagos at 12:00 hrs today, August 27, 2022, for Owerri, could not land due to a bird strike that got the bird stuck on the left main landing gear.
This was made known in a statement signed by the management of the airline.
The strike, the management said affected the operating parameters of the landing gear which made the pilots follow regulatory safety procedures by returning to Lagos where they landed the aircraft safely without any incident.
It further explained that the passengers disembarked normally and another aircraft has since been deployed to operate the flight.
“We apologise for the inconveniences caused to all passengers affected by this situation and be assured of our strict compliance with established safety standards,” The management said.
