PORTLAND — A Southwest Airlines plane struck a bird upon departure from Portland International Airport Saturday afternoon, becoming the first time this year that a bird has damaged an aircraft at PDX.

Flight 3702 was departing for Oakland just before 12:30 p.m. when it hit the bird.  The captain turned around as a precaution and taxied to the gate without being towed.  None of the 136 passengers was injured, but the bird strike damaged the engine and possibly part of a wing.
