NEW YORK - A Delta Airbus A319 has carried out an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York due to a bird strike.The front cone of the aircraft was severely damaged during the incident.

The Airbus A319, which was carrying 43 passengers, was en route to nearby LaGuardia Airport from Palm Beach on Monday evening when the incident occurred. 

The front cone of the aircraft, which protects the plane's radar equipment, was bent out of shape when it was hit by a flock of birds, prompting pilots to make the emergency landing.

Delta's Airbus A319 managed to touch down safely at JFK around 7pm. No passengers or crew members were injured in the incident.

Pilots initially believed that heavy hail may have been responsible for the damage before they determined that birds were the likely cause.
