JetBlue flight makes emergency landing at JFK after bird strike

A Las Vegas-bound flight out of Boston made an emergency landing at JFK Airport on Monday night after striking several birds during takeoff, sources said.

The plane was not able to land in Beantown on account of bad weather, so pilots were forced to keep chugging along to the Big Apple, the sources said.

The bird strike was reported around 4:45 p.m.

Sources said JetBlue Flight 877 circled around JFK in an effort to burn fuel before landing.

The Airbus 320 eventually touched down around 7:30 p.m., according to Flight Radar.
