Flight 'sucks up geese'

A Swoop airline flight headed to Edmonton from Abbotsford was forced to return to Abbotsford after the plane hit a flock of geese shortly after take-off Tuesday morning.

CTV News is reporting the flight took off just after 8 a.m. but was forced to pull a u-turn after hitting the birds, "one of the engines sucked up some geese and the smell was them, well, getting cooked."

Swoop indicates no one was injured as a result of the incident and a statement says all passengers, "were offloaded without incident" after the bird strike.Alternative arrangements are being made for the passengers travelling to Edmonton.
