Thunder plane damaged mid-flight, everyone safe

Thunder plane

The Oklahoma City Thunder had a late-night charter flight out of Minneapolis — where they had just lost to the Timberwolves — to Chicago for their next game.

But their plane was pretty seriously damaged on the nose at 30,000 feet. The team is safe on the ground in Chicago but the images are pretty stunning.


This was a Delta charter flight and according to Delta the plane likely hit a bird on its decent.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt, but damn.
