A Thai Air aircraft suffered a bird strike on its right engine while landing at Tribhuvan International Airport on Sunday afternoon.

No major damages were caused when the right engine of the Boeing 777 ingested the bird at around 1:35 this afternoon. The plane was grounded and engineers from the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal inspected the plane to assess the damage caused by the bird hit.

Flight TG 320 had arrived from Bangkok. It was scheduled to fly to Bangkok at 1 pm but flew only on the evening after engineers cleared it for the return flight.
