Authorities in Mexico are trying to determine if a bird or drone damaged the nose of a Boeing 737 aircraft. A Boeing 737-800 aircraft flight number 773 was flying between Guadalajara and Tijuana when shortly before landing the pilot heard a “pretty loud band” and radioed the tower to check on the damage. The plane was a part of the Mexican Airline Aeromexico fleet.
At the time of publication, there is no available reported evidence that the damage was as the result of a drone collision. Investigation into the crash continues.
“The exact cause is still being investigated,” Grupo Aeromexico said in a statement. “The aircraft landed normally and the passengers’ safety was never compromised.”
