This one seems to have slipped under the radar....
I took the attached photo on 11/8/05 just a couple of days after it ingested a large number of seagulls into the starboard engine during an early morning take-off from EMA, the aircraft - not surprisingly - returned immediately to EMA where it has remained until today (15/8/05) undergoing maintenance.
The damage apparently included about 16 fan blades and a hole in the flaps!

That would explain why it has been missing from EDI's cargo ramp this week! Although we should still be getting SRF?
