A Red Wings Airbus A320-200, registration VP-BWX performing flight WZ-258 from Krasnodar to Moscow Domodedovo (Russia), was descending through FL100 towards Moscow when a bird impacted the aircraft just underneath the aircraft's nose. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on Domodedovo's runway 32L about 10 minutes later.

A post flight inspection revealed the bird had penetrated the lower nose cone just at the connection to the fuselage and caused dents to the lower fuselage as well.

The aircraft is still on the ground about 6 hours after landing.
