Narrative:
The flight AP-2135 was on approach to Naples above 10000 feet, when a sea gull struck the radome of the aircraft doing approximately 300 knots causing a loud bang heard throughout the aircraft and reshaping the nose cone. The bird remained embedded in the now concave radome until after landing and fell onto the runway when the airplane slowed down. The airplane did not receive any damage apart from that to the nose cone.
