Accidents & Serious Incidents at or in vicinity of LIRA

  • B738, Rome Ciampino Italy, 2008 (On 10 November 2008, a Boeing 737-800 about to land at Rome Ciampino Airport flew through a large and dense flock of starlings, which appeared from below the aircraft. After the crew had made an unsuccessful attempt to go around, they lost control due to malfunction of both engines when full thrust was applied and a very hard impact half way along the runway caused substantial damage to the aircraft. The Investigation concluded that the Captain’s decision to attempt a go around after the encounter was inappropriate and that bird risk management measures at the airport had been inadequate.)
