This Boeing 787 operating United Flight 840 from Sydney to Los Angeles for United Airlines this morning had a birdstrike on takeoff. The aircraft had to dump fuel to land safely. It created some damage to the plane, luckily not the engine. There was a fire truck on standby next to runway 34L as the Jetstar flight I was on crossed the runway in front of a jumbo on the taxiway. Unfortunately I was unable to take a photo of the truck in time, it had all its lights on getting ready to speed onto the runway from the side of the taxiway. There was quite a delay after my flight took off (the plane landed 8 minutes after my flight took off luckily, as my flight was already 30 minutes late because of a slow previous flight and refuelling) before everything was reported all clear when the emergency landing was over.
Here is a photo of the right side of my aircraft, the fire truck was on the left
