Bird strike destroys engine as plane lands

An engine on a China Eastern Airlines plane was destroyed after it was hit by a bird while the plane was landing at Hongqiao International Airport . 

The MU5396 flight was from Zhengzhou in Henan Province. The flight crew handled the incident properly, China Eastern said, and the plane landed safely. 

Last Tuesday, a bird hit a China Eastern plane soon after it took off from Taipei's Taoyuan International Airport. The plane had to return to the airport.
