A Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft operated by Air Canada, was conducting flight AC321 from Montreal/Pierre Elliot Trudeau Intl., QC (CYUL) to Calgary Intl, AB (CYYC) with 6 crew members and 125 passengers on board. Approximately 1/2 mile back, on final approach to runway 35R,
multiple birds were ingested in the #2 engine (CFM International Leap 1B). The crew continued the approach and an uneventful landing was accomplished. Abnormal vibrations were noted in the #2 engine and the crew elected to shut down the #2 engine as a precaution on the taxi from the runway. The aircraft was removed from service while maintenance conducted the appropriate inspection items.
The aircraft re-entered service on December 6.
