An Eurowings Europe Airbus A320-200, registration OE-IQB performing flight EW-6814 (scheduled dep. Sep 9th) from Palma Mallorca,SP (Spain) to Nuremberg (Germany), was in the initial climb out of Palma’s runway 06R when the crew stopped the climb at 4000 feet due to engine (CFM56) indications consistent with a bird strike. The aircraft returned to Palma Mallorca for a safe landing on runway 06L about 35 minutes after departure.

A subsequent inspection by maintenance revealed the engine had ingested a hare.
