An American Airlines flight headed to Dallas returned to the Seattle Tacoma International Airport and made an emergency landing after striking possibly two or more birds during takeoff.

Sea-Tac Airport officials said in a tweet that Flight 2310, with 150 passengers, landed safely Wednesday afternoon.

The plane was an Airbus A321, the carrier said.

CBS Seattle affiliate KIRO-TV's news helicopter captured video of the landing. It showed a dent nearly two feet wide from the birds on the nose of the plane as it rolled on a runway.
