BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – An Iberian Airlines flight with 240 people on board has made an emergency landing at Argentina's largest airport because of technical problems after hitting birds.
The plane took off Tuesday afternoon from Carrasco, Uruguay. Shortly thereafter, the pilots made the landing at Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires in neighboring Argentina. Ezeiza is one of the largest airports in South America, making it more able to handle extra air traffic.
