Airbus A330 Multiple Bird Strikes On Climb

The aircraft was in the initial climb, passing 530 ft agl after takeoff, when it was struck by birds which impacted the fan blades of the left and right engines as well as the nose of the aircraft. Both engines were damaged and the left engine was shut down by the crew because the engine oil pressure indicated zero. The aircraft returned to the airport of departure and carried out an uneventful single-engine landing.
