The Oklahoma City Thunder's plane landed safely after a mid-air collision that left a huge dent in the nose of the plane.
The Thunder were traveling to Chicago for their game against the Bulls on Saturday. It is believed that the plane collided with a bird during the flight, according to ABC News. Nobody on the plane was injured.
Elizabeth Wolf, a spokeswoman for Delta, said she believes the plane hit a bird as the plane descended into Chicago about 12:45 a.m.
Wolf, in an email, said no one was hurt and the plane landed without incident. She also said maintenance workers will continue to investigate exactly what happened.

That's actually really minor compared to some bird strikes I've seen. The radome, which is what was damaged, is fiberglass to allow the weather radar to see through it. It's pretty easily damaged by anything from birds to hail.
Bird strikes over the years.
