Frontier trying to get in on the fame. What's that river that flows through Kansas City? It'd be "Miracle on the __________."
Frontier A319 at Kansas City on Nov 14th 2009, birds ingested in both engines
A Frontier Airlines Airbus A319-100, flight F9-820 from Kansas City,MO to Denver,CO (USA) with 129 people on board, departed Kansas City's runway 01R climbing through about 4000 feet, when the airplane flew through a flock of birds ingesting birds into both engines. The airplane stopped climb at 5000 feet, the crew needed to shut the right hand engine down and returned to Kansas City's runway 01L for a safe landing 9 minutes later.
Both engines received damages.
The flight had to be cancelled.
