Plane grounded after hitting large bird while approaching Bismarck Airport airborne again

By  | 

BISMARCK,N.D. - The Sun Country plane that was grounded for 18 days is air-​born again.

The remains of the bird were sent off to find out what species it is. The airport says it could be more than a month until we find out.

The wing was damaged as it was landing at Bismarck Airport.

A Boeing crew arrived last week to fix the damage. Repairs were completed on Tuesday and the plane returned to Minneapolis airport that day.
