This may seem like a fake news headline, but it is actually 100% true. A UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object, and since no one knows exactly what hit the plane, it by definition was unidentified.
After playing the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis, the Oklahoma City Thunder took a flight to Chicago for their next game against the Chicago Bulls. On this flight, however, their chartered plane flew into something soaring high above the earth.
Take a look at the picture taken by Thunder star player Carmelo Anthony once the plane arrived safely back on the ground.
As you can see, whatever it hit left a pretty sizeable dent in the nose of the plane. Anthony’s post asks “What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night?”
The internet has come up with a variety of possible answers as to what was flying around at night that high up in the sky. The most probable answer is some type of bird, but what was that bird doing flying around so high at night?
Another problem with the bird theory would be the lack of bird remains on the plane. There were no feathers or anything else left on the front of the plane that would indicate that some type of animal got blasted at 400 mph.
Another theory could be a rogue weather balloon, but the pilots may have been able to catch a glimpse of it before it struck the nose.
I guess that means it had to be a little UFO with tiny aliens inside? Unfortunately, their little adventure came to an abrupt end as they got punted across the night sky by an airliner traveling at a few hundred miles per hour.
What do you think it was? What kind of bird would leave a dent like that? Let us know in the comments below!
