The Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team were caught up in a freaky mid-air incident when their charter plane was struck by an as yet unidentified object on its way to Chicago, damaging the nose cone.

Anthony wrote on Instagram, "What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night? Everyone is safe, though".

An official spokesperson for Delta, however, said the damage was likely caused by a bird strike while the plane was landing, according to USA Today.

The team's charter flight to Chicago apparently encountered a bird during descent that crushed the nose of the plane.

The Thunder played the Timberwolves in Minneapolis on Friday and left around 11:30 p.m.to fly to Chicago where they play the Bulls on Saturday.

Spanish Catalonia move likened to Franco
European Union leaders have backed the Madrid government in its handling of the crisis, which Rajoy insists is an internal matter. Rajoy said new elections should be called for Catalonia within six months but that he wanted it to happen as soon as possible.

That may change after what the Oklahoma City Thunder experienced early Saturday morning. Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger guided the plane onto the icy waters around New York City, leading to the safe disembarkment of all 155 people onboard.

"The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, landed safely without incident; customers have since deplaned and maintenance teams are evaluating".

"We had a rough flight to say the least", Adams tweeted. "Safety is Delta's top priority".

Patrick Patterson said the Thunder hit Superman.
