Belarus' Department of Aviation Commission investigates into incident of Belavia Boeing

The Department of Aviation Commission has begun the investigation into the incident of a Belavia Boeing. The Minsk- St. Petersburg plane returned to Minsk National Airport straight after taking off the day before. At the height of 150m the aircraft collided with a flock of birds.

Despite the engine variable being in a normal condition, the decision of the crew team to return was right. After the plane was examined, it turned out that the engine was damaged. All in all there were 114 passengers on board. There were no injuries in the incident.
