A JetBlue flight to the Bahamas returned to JFK Airport this morning after a bird struck the plane, representatives for the company said.
Flight 721 departed around 10 a.m. and was hit by a bird about an hour later, officials added.
It did not appear to be a direct hit to the engine or windshield but the pilot turned around as a precaution, a company spokeswoman said.
The plane landed safely and was undergoing inspections with 125 passengers aboard.
This was the second JetBlue flight that had to return to JFK after getting hit by a bird in as many days. Yesterday, a Dominican Republic-bound flight had to go back to the airport after the pilot reported problems to the controllers on the ground.
