An Aeroflot Airbus A320-200, registration VQ-BAX performing flight SU-1410 from Moscow Sheremetyevo to Ekaterinburg (Russia), was climbing out of Sheremetyevo's runway 25L when the left hand engine (CFM56) ingested a bird resulting in engine vibrations. The crew levelled off at FL050, entered a holding pattern to burn off fuel and returned to Sheremetyevo Airport for a safe landing on runway 25R about 40 minutes after departure.

Rosaviatsia reported six fan blades were found bent, remains of poultry found further downstream of the engine and a fuel leak was identified.

The aircraft is still on the ground 39 hours after landing.

A replacement A320-200 registration VQ-BKU reached Ekaterinburg with a delay of 2:45 hours.
