A WestJet flight from Calgary to Victoria Tuesday morning was diverted to Vancouver, after the aircraft hit a flock of birds while trying to land at Victoria International Airport.

The airline says flight 209 suffered a bird strike while inbound to Victoria. It diverted to Vancouver International Airport due to the availability of maintenance resources.

The Boeing 737-800 reportedly hit a flock of birds, smashing the aircraft’s nose cone in. Officials say the flight landed normally and the aircraft has now been removed from service for required safety inspections.
