The damage to the nose cone is pretty evident

       An Iberia Airbus A340 had to make an emergency landing today by an apparent bird strike that hit the radome of the aircraft causing significant damage.
       Flight 6533 of the Spanish carrier was flying from Madrid, Spain (MAD) to San Juan, Puerto Rico but returned for an emergency landing shortly after takeoff when the incident occurred.
