Bonjour,

Dans la série bird strikes, un Boeing 757 de United, en phase de décollage à Denver.

Noté les stats de la FAA pour cet aéroport en 2008 :

257 ''wildlife aircraft strikes''

DENVER (AP) -- A United Airlines jet returned safely to the Denver airport Tuesday after a bird was sucked into one of its engines shortly after takeoff.

The engine that was struck continued to operate and the second engine wasn't affected, airline spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said. A passenger said the bird hit the right engine.

None of the 151 passengers and crew was injured.

The Boeing 757 had just left for San Francisco when the bird strike happened. McCarthy said the pilot's decision to return to the airport was a precaution.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer confirmed the bird was ingested by the
engine.

FAA statistics show 257 ''wildlife aircraft strikes'' at Denver
International Airport last year. The statistics don't say how many were birds or what parts of the
aircraft were hit.

Nationwide, the FAA reported 5,456 bird strikes that damaged aircraft last year, but the agency
doesn't say how many birds were sucked into engines.

Juste pouir l'info', ...pas de comparaison odieuse entre moteurs / motoristes, .... mais il me semble que les motejurs sur les B757-200 de UAL sont des P&W (PW20377 / -2040 ? Question ).
