Ryanair plane hits seagulls during landing

A Ryanair plane arriving at Barcelona-El Prat Airport in May 2018 struck a flock of seagulls on landing, footage recently posted on YouTube shows. The footage shows that a number of birds were ingested by the engine of the Boeing 737. A slow-motion section also shows birds striking off the plane’s wing. Miguel Angel, who regularly posts videos from the Barcelona airport, said about 20 gulls were killed during the landing. He said the runway was closed for an hour for cleanup.
