DENVER A United Airlines jet collided with a bird on Tuesday morning as the plane was descending into the Denver airport.

Pictures from the airport showed a large hole in the nose of the Boeing 737, which had taken off from Dallas/Fort Worth.

Flight 1475 landed safely just before 9:30 a.m., then was escorted to one of the gates of the B concourse at the airport.

There were 151 passengers on board but there were no injuries, said Christen David, a spokeswoman for United Airlines.
