Chartered Delta 757 carrying the Utah Jazz suffers bird strike and engine failure at Salt Lake International

A Delta Boeing 757 chartered by the Utah Jazz NBA basketball team took off from SLC enroute to Memphis for a basketball game. At around 3,500 agl the aircraft hit a flock of birds causing such significant damage to the number one engine that it lit on fire and shut down. The aircraft circled back and made a safe landing and fire crews escorted the plane to a safe evacuation area. The team was then sent on a later plane to their destination. ( 기타...

A happy outcome from an unplanned event. A similar event at Manchester airport here in the UK (co-incidentally also involving a B757) is a regular on YouTube; ingested a bird at rotation, proceeded onwards and upwards trailing smoke and flame from the starboard engine; happy outcome later.

Compliments to the training, the aircrew - and the second engine.
Yes, that video of MAN is used in wildlife mitigation classes for the past decade. I’ve seen it at least a dozen times. And of course the US Airways A320 in the Hudson. Both classic cases.
Putty, the 757 is a very beautiful plane
The plane survived. You just change the engine!
Heck, when the BA 777 #1 engine blew up on takeoff roll at LAS and caught fire, damaging the wi g and fuselage, it was back i. The air some 8 months later!
But it’s also sad that there was no video of the actual strike
Not always being in the right place at the right time to catch the action.
However, you can easily visualize it. I know I can.....

I was thinking the same thing. Is marijuana legal in Utah?
It is a big deal. Although not very likely, the loss of plane, crew, & passengers (in this case a pro basketball team) would have been very, very big news. In the case of the having a pro team on board; losing it would have had repercussions across the league (or any pro league, college team, or conference). The pros would have held a ‘draft’ of players on other teams to regenerate the team to continue playing. Could be, the sentiment to not play would be strong.
