Unfallbericht:
After lift-off from runway 35 at Dublin Airport the B737 aircraft encountered a flock of 20 to 30 gulls. Several bangs were heard, the aircraft yawed and buffeted. The left hand engine suffered immediate and catastrophic damage, the nr.1 power lever slammed closed, the landing gear horn sounded and the nr 1 engine thrust reverser unlocked light illuminated. The damage to the engine left it hanging from the wing (dropping 10 deg at the rear) causing drag and vibration. After only five minutes in the air, an emergency landing was made on runway 23 with a low rate of descent, resulting in the damaged engine remaining attached to the wing. Five birds had struck the airframe and one black-headed gull had been ingested into the nr. 1 engine.
Captains Michael Dalton and Gerard Blacoe were presented with the Irish Air Line Pilots’ Association (IALPA) Wright Brothers’ Award 2005 in recognition of their professionalism and distinguished airmanship.
