On 22 June 2021, at 15:49 UTC, SAS Scandinavian Airlines flight SK4546, operated by an Airbus A320neo, was affected by the presence of a flock of birds during its final approach to Alta airport, Norway (incident).

 

 

The aircraft crew proceeded with a "go around" manoeuvre and could not prevent the right engine from stalling due to ingestion of a seagull. The plane landed safely with one engine running 10 minutes later (video).

 

 

We reproduce below the presentation made by Sepla's Technical Department at the Fauna Forum held in January 2020 at AESA, in which we describe a similar incident with its corresponding safety recommendations.
