    Apparently one of the flight crew suffered a 'laser-incident' at takeoff from LHR according to Twitter.

    As far as I know, these eye injuries are sometimes not immediately apparent after injury such as looking at very bright light like welders etc. Might be similar with a laser incident.

    EI339 went around a few mins ago, probably on foot of the problems with the AFR

    Not really. Imagine the scenario, you're on the flight deck with a couple of hundred pax behind you, laser incident on takeoff but you continue, more than likely assuming/hoping that whatever aggravation your eye is suffering from will pass with a sufficient amount of rubbing/poking/prodding and a bit of time. You certainly don't want to turn around and land back in LHR, visit the company doctor and say "ah well it was a bit itchy but it's grand now". That kind of occurrence would have you summoned to a meeting without tea and biscuits with the bosses. Also, you don't want to turn the aircraft around because you know it's going to put a substantial cost on the company and cause multiple delays/missed connections/fecked up itineraries for pax. Fast forward about 50 minutes and the eye has not improved or worse, deteriorated further. No pilot will be willing to enter the oceanic crossing with an injury such as eye trouble. Especially a laser type injury of which the full adverse effects may not become clear for a period of time. Everything must be considered, what would happen if the other pilot suffered a laser attack on approach to JFK, all of a sudden you now have an A340 with two visually impaired pilots.

    The decision to turn back is not taken lightly, it is a decision based on a wide array of factors, some of which take time to present themselves, such as what was probable in this case, a deteriorating (or not improving) eye condition.

    Here's hoping the pilot recovers from this and it doesn't end his career.

    Hope they don't fight over who lands first. :-)

    Was there an engine ingestion and shutdown?

    What flies at 17000 ft around here? Geese?

    I see lots of geese activity around North Dublin and often wonder about aircraft issues.

    The strike occured on rotation. FL170 is where they decided to stop the climb.

    A runway inspection reported no bird carcasses were recovered from the runway. The crew decided to return to Dublin and landed safely back on runway 28 about 35 minutes after departure.
    I was listening to the ATC feed at the time and there was bits of bird debris spotted by another aircraft near the start of the runway (I think). Then the runway inspection people said it must have been a curlew. I'll listen to the archives later to see what was said exactly or where they found pieces of bird.

    ETA: Huh. Don't recollect seeing the Garda chopper on this before. Probably there for the David Byrne funeral.

    Driving home through Galway City this evening I spotted some heavy iron, quite low (7,000 - 8,000ft) moving south to north - a rare sight over Galway.

    Turns out it was this - https://www.flightradar24.com/data/airplanes/ei-une/#8d3548f

    Flight testing, training flight?

    I was surprised to see the heli symbol there myself. I saw the chopper over south Dublin from3-4pm. It was noticeably higher than I have ever seen before. Would this be a reason for its transponder to be broadcasting (obviously FR24 isn't relied on by ATC and or traffic!!)

    I was told the Garda/air corps defender was out for the funeral aswell?
    Shocking the cost to the state that one scumbags funeral costs.
