Huguely says Flight 1017 was carrying 182 passengers and a six-person crew Tuesday afternoon. Huguely says the bird strike involved the left engine and that the plane returned to DFW airport. She had no details on damage to the twin-engine jet, which was taken out of service for inspection.

The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/19iuUVp ) reports the passengers included several Dallas City Council members heading to a National League of Cities conference. Councilman Philip Kingston says the left engine apparently hit the bird and was vibrating.
