Copy-Plane Carrying OKC Thunder Team Suffers Damage En Route To Chicago

Copy-Plane Carrying OKC Thunder Team Suffers Damage En Route To Chicago”

"Everyone is safe, though".

"We had a rough flight to say the least", Adams tweeted, with a photo of the plane.

Oklahoma City Thunder's Friday night loss to the Timberwolves may have left fans wondering what happened in those final seconds.

Upon landing in Chicago, the players found significant damage to the nose of their Delta charter flight, which had clearly gone head-to-head with something.

"I guess we hit something?"

The sportsman posted a dramatic picture to Twitter of a badly damaged plane.

Airplanes have been having unwelcome encounters with wildlife ever since man sent its own winged craft into the sky.

Wolf, in an email, said no one was hurt and the plane landed without incident. According to a statement Delta airlines issued via USA Today...a bird. The vast majority involve birds, although bats and reptiles and mammals that have wandered onto runways have also been involved.

Around a century after the Wright flight, the perhaps best-known bird collision led to the "Miracle on the Hudson".

New Zealand player Steven Adams shared photographs of the damage after arriving at Chicago's O'Hare Airport at 1.30am on Saturday after their flight from Minnesota.

"You know, you don't every take anything for granted", the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player told reporters as the team prepared to take on the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.
