Flight hits deer on take­off

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Au­thor­i­ties said an Amer­i­can Eagle flight struck a deer while tak­ing off from the Char­lotte, North Carolina, in­ter­na­tional air­port, forc­ing it to turn around and abort a flight to Gulf­port, Mis­sis­sippi. Amer­i­can Air­lines spokes­woman Katie Cody said Flight 5320 was leak­ing fuel as a re­sult of the deer strike. TV sta­tions showed dam­age to one of the right front wing flaps of the CRJ700 jet, and emer­gency per­son­nel sprayed foam on the air­craft as a pre­cau­tion. No in­juries were re­ported.
