Red Wings flight WZ4321, a Sukhoi Superjet 100-95B, was descending through FL160 towards Yerevan when one of the pilots instead of pressing the button to delete text messages on the engine display, erroneously performed an emergency landing gear extension.
As a result of this, the flight speed limits with the landing gear extended were exceeded. Further descent and landing were performed without problems. During inspection of the aircraft, no damage was found.

The aircraft was ferried back to Moscow (DME) on 23 April 2022 and resumed service on 25 April.
