TAMPA -- A United Airlines flight that took off in Tampa was diverted back to the airport after reports the aircraft struck some ducks.
A spokesperson at the airport said the flight was headed to Houston just before 8 a.m. when the plane hit a bird and had to return to Tampa.
The flight was left around 7:40 a.m., but returned around 7:50 a.m.
My plane to Houston hit a flock of Geese. Back on the ground in Tampa now. Ay PETA, you mad?— House of Skins (@FightForDC) March 8, 2017
