An American Eagle flight from Chicago landed at Ronald Reagan National Airport with a cracked windshield Tuesday evening.

Later, an AirTran flight destined to Indianapolis from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport was forced to turn around and return to BWI.

Both flights were apparent victims of bird strikes.

The pilot of the American Eagle flight told air traffic controllers that the plane hit a bird as it approached the airport. Emergency vehicles were standing by as the plane landed. No injuries were reported.

Several miles from BWI, the AirTran flight hit one or more birds. It landed safely back at BWI.
