Plane hits deer while taking off from North Carolina airport

Deer strikes are not infrequent for planes in the U.S. There were over 1,100 deer-aircraft collisions reported to the Federal Aviation Administration between 1990 and 2015.

A flight bound for MS from Charlotte declared an emergency after it collided with a deer while taking off Wednesday.

The American Eagle flight struck a deer shortly after taking off from North Carolina's global airport in the U.S., forcing it to turn around and abort a flight to Mississippi. It then turned around and landed safety on a different runway. Yet, that's what happened today when an American Airlines regional jet struck a deer on the runway and began leaking fuel.

Emergency crews immediately surrounded the plane and sprayed it with foam upon landing. The airplane was towed away around 2 p.m.

Crew onboard American Eagle Airlines flight 5320 say the plane hit a deer during departure from the runway.
