Thunder's charter plane damaged flying to Chicago, lands safely

Carmelo Anthony

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.

Thunder players Carmelo Anthony, Josh Huestis and Steven Adams all posted photos of the plane with a large dent on its nose. The site notes the Thunder played in Minneapolis on Friday and are due to play the Chicago Bulls at 7pm local time today. Adams tweeted the post to NASA and scientists Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson. 30000 feet in the air. Flying to chicago. What caused this? The plane landed safely, and no one was hurt. Although, as many pointed out on Twitter, if the plane did hit a bird, that hardly calls for the explanation of a world-renowned astrophysicist.

After disembarking, National Basketball Association stars Carmelo Anthony and Josh Huestis posted pictures of the damage to social media. Top contenders: A bird - Big Bird from Sesame Street, specifically - a plane, an alien or, of course, Superman.

"Delta flight #DL8935, operating from Minneapolis to Chicago-Midway as a charter flight for the Oklahoma City Thunder, likely encountered a bird while on descent into Chicago", the statement read. Let's hope they make it there safely.
