A Southwest Airlines plane bound for Phoenix was forced to turn around and return to Nashville International Airport after it hit a bird Wednesday morning, the Tennessean reported.
The incident happened shortly after Flight 577 took off at 5:13 a.m., Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Michelle Agnew said.
"The captain in command safely returned the flight” to the Nashville terminal, Agnew said.
The plane underwent a maintenance review, Agnew told the Tennessean. Airport employees at the Nashville terminal were working to reroute passengers to their destinations, Agnew said.
