2001-11-08: Update Nov 7, 2001 Aerodrome Safety. Airport Operations conduct Bird Patrols prior to Departures/Arrivals and advised pilots of any observed activity. During the occurrence period, airport personnel were not able get out to the runway due to other aircraft movements prior to the departing SPR912 flight.
2001-10-31: TSB Update Oct 30, 2001. A01A0131: SPR912, an SA-227, registration C-FIPW was on the take off roll from runway 09 at Stephenville en route to St. John's when the aircraft struck several birds. The captain who was the PF, aborted the take off and taxied the aircraft to the terminal ramp. Airport personnel informed the flight crew that they had found two dead seagulls on the runway. The flight crew completed a visual inspection of the aircraft and discovered a small dent in the outboard leading edge section of the right wing and in the leading edge of the right horizontal stabilizer. The crew suspected that one of the birds may have come in contact with the right propeller; however, upon inspection, there was no visible damage. Inspection by maintenance personnel revealed that the small dents discovered by the flight crew were present previous to the birdstrikes; they did not discover any additional damage to the fuselage or propeller. After visual inspection, they ran the aircraft and soon after, returned it to service.
2001-10-29: SPR912 SW4 Aborted Takeoff Rnwy 09 at Stephenville due bird strikes. One bird hit the prop and another the wing. No apparent visible damage to the aircraft. Maintenance are inspecting it. TSB Case Closed with more to follow.
