Oklahoma City Thunder: Plane nose crumpled midair by…a bird?

Oklahoma City Thunder: Plane nose crumpled midair by…a bird?

The Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team landed in Chicago to find that the nose of their charter plane had been crushed like an eggshell.

The reason for the incident is not yet clear, but the image of the plane suggests that it hit an object while flying.

Officials believe that the team's plane slammed into a bird at 30,000 feet, but Thunder players Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams were unconvinced, judging by the photos they posted on social media of the plane's caved-in nose.

"I guess we hit something?" 30000 feet in the air.

He asked NASA and famous TV scientists Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson what happened, to no answer, but now Delta Airlines has revealed it was "likely" a bird. The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, landed without incident and customers deplaned normally.

According to Robbins, businesses have to think about how they interact with their customers when dealing with digital strategies. The move is consistent with Cisco's strategic pivot away from expensive equipment and hardware to cloud-based software services.

The Thunder lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves, 119-116, Friday night.

Delta Airlines spokeswoman Elizabeth Wolf said maintenance was evaluating the situation and the damage was likely caused by a collision with a bird.

Oklahoma City plays the Bulls on Saturday night at the United Center.

A Thunder spokesperson said early Saturday that all players, staff and coaches were safe and en route to their hotel.
