BOSTON (AP) — Officials say a small commercial plane collided with a large bird just before the aircraft landed safely at Logan International Airport in Boston.

Cape Air spokeswoman Michelle Haynes says the plane carrying nine passengers had been flying from Martha's Vineyard to Boston on Wednesday.

Haynes says that as the pilot approached the runway to land at around noon, a large bird hit the left wing and left a small dent on the plane.

She says an emergency was issued so the Cessna 402 could get priority landing as a precaution. No injuries were reported. Haynes says no other damage has been found.
