2003-07-03: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that ZIP flight 3J 6259 (YEG-YVR) had a bird strike at approximately 2,000 feet after departure from Edmonton. Number 1 engine ingested the bird. The crew returned to YEG where company maintenance inspected the aircraft (borescope of engine) and it was determined to be serviceable and was released. It is suspected that the smoke in the cockpit scenario was perhaps due to the smell that can pass from the engine via bleed air to the cockpit cabin. This is common with bird ingestion.
