Air ambulance makes emergency landing after striking bird
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The pilot of an air ambulance transporting a patient from Fargo Wednesday executed a successful emergency landing after the plane collided with a bird on takeoff, authorities said.
Sanford AirMed Director Tim Meyer said there were no injuries from the incident and the patient on board was transported safely. The airplane sustained minor damage, he said.
“Due to the fast response of the pilot, the plane landed safely,” Meyer told KVRR-TV. The plane is based in Dickinson.
