A Ryanair Boeing 737-800, registration EI-EKR performing flight FR-2131 from Manchester,EN (UK) to Lanzarote,CI (Spain), was climbing out of Manchester's runway 23R when the crew stopped the climb at 4000 feet due to a bird strike and decided to divert to Liverpool,EN (UK) where the aircraft landed safely on runway 27 about 55 minutes after departure.

Ground observers at Manchester reported the engines (CFM56) sounded rough, almost like a helicopter, as the aircraft climbed out.
