The charter plane of National Basketball Association side Oklahoma City Thunder was left with a MAHOOSIVE dent in its nose after it was reportedly hit by a bird at 30,000 feet.

According to ESPN's Royce Young, the Thunder landed in Chicago around 1 a.m. local time.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were en route to Chicago on Friday evening after losing to the Timberwolves when their plane was struck by what is believed to be a bird.

All the players, coaches, and staff aboard the plane landed safely.

Carmelo Anthony shared the damage to the plane on his Instagram account, asking what could have caused the damage at that particular hour in the evening.

A Delta Airlines spokesperson, Victoria Wolf has said: "Delta flight 8935, operating from Minneapolis to Chicago-Midway as a charter flight for the Oklahoma City Thunder, likely encountered a bird while on descent into Chicago. Safety is Delta's top priority".

Adams attached a photo of the nose of the twinjet Boeing 757-200, which appeared dented as if the plane hit something so hard it caused the nose to invert.

The Thunder is scheduled to play the Bulls tonight at the United Center.

Thunder forward Patrick Patterson took a video of the damage to the nose of the plane.
