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

New Zealand's Steven Adams has found some solid scoring form for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA

The plane carrying National Basketball Association stars of the Oklahoma City Thunder was damaged mid-air, when the nose of the plane was caved in Friday night.

"We had a rough flight to say the least", Adams tweeted.

They noticed the damage after landing at Chicago's O'Hare Airport at 1.30am.

Several Thunder fans suggested the damage could have been caused by a bird strike - like this American Airlines aircraft damaged on its way to Dallas, Texas previous year.

The plane "likely encountered a bird" during its descent, a Delta Air Lines spokesperson said in a statement, adding that the aircraft landed safely. The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, landed without incident and customers deplaned normally.

Russian helicopter crashes into the sea near Norway
The incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon 2-3 kilometers off Barentsburg, the second-largest settlement on Svalbard Islands. It was not immediately clear if the helicopter had crashed or if there were any injuries.

Thankfully no one was injured, and the Thunder players can breathe easy and give a little thanks, as Carmelo Anthony did in his Instagram post. Safety is Delta's top priority, ' a spokesman said.

Steven Adams posted a photo on Twitter asking NASA, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and science educator Bill Nye (who was a former mechanical engineer for Boeing) for help figuring out what happened to the plane.

The Thunder were travelling to Chicago to face the Bulls later Saturday following a 119-116 loss to Minnesota on Friday.
