Nose of plane carrying Oklahoma City Thunder dented on flight to Chicago

Per Young, a Thunder official said there was nothing "extreme or out of the ordinary" about the flight that would have led to the plane's nose being damaged.

Oklahoma City plays the Bulls on Saturday night at the United Center. Several players posted pictures after a safe landing and, man, they really aren't the type of thing that will make you feel great about flying in the future. The team landed safely at Chicago's Midway Airport after 1:00 a.m.

Carmelo Anthony posted an image of the dented plane with the caption, "What could we have possibly hit in the SKY at this time of night?"

The team were quite "surprised" after disembarking to find the actual done to the plane.

On Saturday a spokesperson for the Thunder told The Oklahoman that all players, staff and coaches were just fine upon their arrival in Chicago.

"The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, landed safely without incident; customers have since deplaned and maintenance teams are evaluating. Safety is Delta's top priority".

Thunder big man Steven Adams also took a photo of the damage and jokingly asked Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, and NASA what could have caused this type of damage 30,000 feet in the air.

"The critical bird hits in aviation [are] the ones that occur on the engine area", Genc said.
