On the 27th of October, a two-and-a-half-year-old Iberia Airbus A350-900, registration EC-NDR, was on final approach to Madrid’s runway 32L when a black vulture impacted the aircraft’s nose.

The flight was IB-6586 from Bogota, Colombia to Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas Airport, Spain.

The plane continued on and landed safely about 90 seconds later, following which the runway was inspected.

A black vulture (Aegypius monachus) can have a wingspan of up to two and a half meters and weigh up to 12 kilograms.

The plane is still on the ground, with a journey to Buenos Aires, Argentina, scheduled for tomorrow, October 28th, according to FlightRadar24.
