Overseas B737-800 go around accident due severe bird strike 120 birds

https://www.skybrary.aero/index.php/...no_Italy,_2008

On 10 November 2008, a Boeing 737-800 about to land at Rome Ciampino Airport flew through a large and dense flock of starlings, which appeared from below the aircraft. After the crew had made an unsuccessful attempt to go around, they lost control due to malfunction of both engines when full thrust was applied and a very hard impact half way along the runway caused substantial damage to the aircraft. The Investigation concluded that the Captainís decision to attempt a go around after the encounter was inappropriate and that bird risk management measures at the airport had been inadequate.

  • On 22 September 1995, a U.S. Air Force E-3 Sentry (callsign Yukla 27, serial number 77-0354), crashed shortly after takeoff from Elmendorf AFB, Alaska. The plane lost power to both left side engines after these engines ingested several Canada geese during takeoff. The aircraft went down about 2 miles (3.2 km) northeast of the runway, killing all 24 crew members on board.

Folks,
Remember the PanAm B707-321 that went off the end of (then) runway 34 at Sydney in the 1960's?
Multiple engines loss of power due to the birdstrike, and major damage when the aircraft hit the non-frangible concrete block the frangible approach light poles for 16 were mounted on.
At the time, of the biggest rebuilds (instead of write-offs) ever done by a Boeing AOG Field Team.
Tootle pip!!

A friend of mine and his captain were killed in the first Nimrod accident the RAF suffered. They hit a large flock of seagulls which were on the runway. Three engines failed and the other only took them as far as the woods ahead on the departure path. The rear crew all survived.

Multiple engines loss of power due to the birdstrike,
According to the BASIS accident report, the bird strikes caused momentary loss of thrust on two engines but during the subsequent rejected take off all four engines delivered full reverse thrust. The bird strike was at V1 with the result that the abort took place beyond V1. Along with various other factors, it was the abort after V1 that caused the over-run. An interesting report to read using Google.

Ahhh, the days of the Tempe Tip next to the airport, and squillions of seagulls. Birdstrike paradise.
