Air India's massive security breach

On Monday morning soon after take-off, an Air India flight experienced a bird-hit which was deemed as a serious threat to the aircraft.

According to security protocol, the aircraft should have sought priority landing from the nearest ATC.

The pilot instead decided to keep flying to the destination at the IGI Airport, Delhi, where it was allegedly not given permission to land.
