Ryanair Bird Strike

just reading in the Daiuly Mirror today on page 25 and has reported that a ryanair flight from dublin to bristol had hit a flok of racing pigeons about 600ft after takeoff from dublin causing one engine to be shut down.

the ryanair flight landed on with the use of one enging back at dublin and all 103 pax & 5 crew were ok.

can anyone tell me any more information like at what time and what reg has now taken out of action.

i work for ryanair at stansted and have noticed the cable & wireless has not been around.

your help would be good

Thanks in advance

Please Note:
The Air Accident Investigation Unit (AAIU), in its report published today on the April 2003 incident.
This is what you were reading about in that comic.

You'd think the racing pigeons , being VFR only, wouldnt have entered restricted airspace without a clearance...
