A Boeing 737-800, flying on behalf of Turkish Airlines, suffered sudden engine shutdown with a loud noise and streaks of flames during a bird strike incident in Kars Harakani airport (KSI), Turkey.
The incident occurred on September 27, 2020, when AnadoluJet, the subsidiary carrier of Turkish Airlines, aircraft, registered as TC-JZO, was en route to Ankara Esenboga Airport (ESB).
The initial reports showed that during climb out of the runway, the pilots hit a bird and damaged the left-hand engine of the jet. When the crew reached a climbing level of 12,000 feet, the left engine was shut down due to failure and the pilot made a decision to return to KSI.

The engine inspection showed that the turbofan blades were damaged after hitting an unspecified object, which led to severe engine damage.
