Ahmedabad: The bird collided with the flight going from Ahmedabad to Chandigarh. After this the flight was diverted. According to the DGCA, the Go First flight took off from Ahmedabad to Chandigarh on 4 August. It was diverted to Ahmedabad after the bird collided in it.

Earlier in June also, emergency landing of aircraft going from Patna to Delhi and Delhi to Guwahati was done. There was a technical problem due to the collision of the bird in these two planes. The planes had to land shortly after the flight. There was also a fire in the engine of an aircraft.
The first incident took place in a flight going from Patna to Delhi. It was a SpiceJet plane. It took off from Patna in the afternoon and shortly afterwards its engine caught fire. The engine caught fire due to the collision of the bird. After this, emergency landing of the aircraft was made at Patna Airport. There were 185 passengers on board the plane. Thankfully no passenger was harmed.
The second incident happened in a flight going from Delhi to Guwahati. It was an Indigo flight. This flight was at an altitude of 1600 feet, when a bird collided with its engine. After this the plane was called back to Delhi airport.
Bird collisions usually occur when the aircraft is flying at a low altitude. These incidents are more common during landing and takeoff. Generally, most incidents of bird collisions are not dangerous, but sometimes bird collisions worsen the situation and the plane needs to land immediately.
According to a survey by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), an average of 34 incidents of birds colliding with aircraft are reported every day. Due to this, there is a loss of $ 1 billion (about Rs 7,800 crore) annually. It was also revealed in this survey that there is no harm in about 92 percent of the incidents.
