2011 Aircraft Bird Strike Could Have Ended in Catastrophe

A report recently released by media outlet Correio da Manhã, stated that a bird strike on an aircraft as it took off from Madeira International Airport in 2011 resulted in a lower cargo door malfunction (the door sprung open), which could have led to a 'catastrophic failure' resulting in the death of all 105 passengers and 7 crew members on board a SATA flight leaving Madeira for Copenhagen.
