The Antonov freighter, the seconds An-124 prototype, was operating on a test flight out of Gostomel. When at about 19,700 ft during a high speed descent, a
bird, believed to be about 1.8 kg, was struck holing the nose. This allowed the area between the nose and the front bulkhead to become pressurised by the ram-air causing failure of the upward opening freight door. Control was lost and the aircraft crashed, one of the crew managed to eject but the others were killed when it crashed in a forest. The aircraft had been flying at a speed of 330 kts and was outside the normal flight envelope.
