An airplane carrying Turkish soccer club Fenerbahce to Manchester, England, made an emergency landing in Hungary after pilots noticed cracks in the windshield after it was hit by a bird, Budapest Airport and the club said on Wednesday.

The BoraJet airplane carrying players and team officials, including club president Aziz Yildirim, took off from Istanbul at 11 a.m. (0800 GMT). It landed at Budapest’s Ferenc Liszt Airport, the nearest airport, after the security system indicated a flaw in the hermetic seal.

The team, traveling to a Europa League match against Manchester United on Thursday, was waiting at the Budapest terminal for another airplane being sent from Istanbul.
