Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)
2001-08-28: UPDATE TSB reported that a bird strike at rotation caused a compressor stall in the number 2 engine of the Boeing 737-200. The flight returned to Calgary with partial power on the engine and landed without further incident, with AFF standing by. Maintenance personnel changed the engine and returned the aircraft to service.
2001-10-31: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that the a/c struck a hawk on departure from Runway 28. Discussions with the crew determined that the strike occurred just after rotation over the threshold of Runway 10. The hawk was ingested into the number 2 engine, which caused a compressor stall and forced the crew to return with partial power on the engine. There were no remains to properly identify the species of hawk. An inspection immediately upon return of the a/c revealed a number of bent and torn fan blades, as well as damage to the inner lining of the engine. A subsequent follow-up with Air Canada determined that the engine was replaced and the a/c returned to service. No report on how long the a/c was down or what costs were involved. Pictures of the damage were taken and are available for review. Regular wildlife control activities were ongoing at the time of the strike and additional emphasis was placed on hawk deterrence after the incident.
2001-08-14: The crew of ACA 3901, a B737 with 100 people on board, reported a bird strike when departing on Runway 28 at Calgary. A power loss on the right engine resulted and the crew returned and landed the aircraft on Runway 34 without further incident. CFR was on standby. TSB to update.
