The Oklahoma City Thunder had a scary situation late Friday night.

Following their loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team flew from Minneapolis to Chicago, where they will play the Bulls on Saturday night. Along the way, their airplane was damaged in mid-air, with the nose of the plane being completely caved in.
