Oklahoma City Thunder's plane has its nose crushed by apparent bird collision

The team posted pictures on social media after landing in Chicago.

"I guess we hit something," player Josh Huestis tweeted.

Delta Airlines spokeswoman Elizabeth Wolf said maintenance was evaluating the situation and that the damage was likely caused by a collision with a bird. She said the Boeing 757-200 landed safely without incident at Chicago’s Midway International Airport.
