    News agency ANI reported that flight AI 410, with 124 passengers, was forced to make an emergency landing at Patna's Jay Prakash Narayan Airport - from where it took off - after a bird-hit caused one of the engines to develop a snag.

    Earlier this week, a Delhi-bound Air India flight carrying 131 passengers returned to the city airport after suffering a bird-hit. An Air India spokesperson confirmed the incident saying the flight AI 440 was airborne for nearly 20 minutes before it suffered the bird-hit, "forcing" it to return to the city airport.

    This is the third incident of bird hit in a month. Earlier, passengers flying in two flights of SpiceJet and Indigo suffered bird hits on June 17 over the Jay Prakash Narayan International Airport in Patna.
