On 10 November 2008, Ryanair Flight 4102 from Frankfurt–Hahn Airport, in Frankfurt, Germany to Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport, in Rome, Italy, suffered multiple bird strikes while landing.[1] Of the 172 people on board, two crew and eight passengers received hospital treatment for minor injuries.[2] The 8-month-old Boeing 737-8AS jet used for the flight (registered as EI-DYG)[3] had received a massive amount of damage, which led to it being written off.[4] This accident represents the fourth hull loss of a Boeing 737-800.[5]


The jet struck up to 90 starlings[5] on final approach to Rome Ciampino Airport which damaged the port (left) side landing gear and both engines. The flight attempted to execute a missed approach after one engine was damaged, but the remaining engine ingested birds as well and was damaged during this maneuver. It was reported that the aircraft left runway 15 for a short time before the flight crew brought it back onto the runway.[2]

The final report of the accident, investigated by the Agenzia Nazionale per la Sicurezza del Volo (National Agency for the Safety of Flights; ANSV) was released on 20 December 2018, more than 10 years after the accident.[6][7]


The airport was closed for 36 hours[8] and all traffic was diverted to Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport due to the jet being stranded on the runway after the port side landing gear collapsed.[1][2]

This accident caused such substantial damage that the aircraft was written off. Ryanair retained ownership of it for certain parts and for training purposes.[4]
