Passenger jet lands safely after bird strike

WHITE PLAINS – Jet Blue flight 671 from Westchester County Airport to Palm Beach International Airport experienced a bird strike shortly after take-off Friday morning.

The captain of the 150-seat, twin engine Airbus 320 aircraft elected to divert to JFK International Airport as a precaution.  The flight landed safely at JFK at 9:55 a.m.

Customers were given the option of being accommodated on another flight from JFK to Palm Beach or taken back to Westchester County.
