The plane that was carrying the OKC Thunder during a scary in-fight incident that crushed the nose of the plane has been repaired … and it’s ready to get back in the air, TMZ Sports has learned.
The incident took place Saturday morning — Delta, which was operating the team’s chartered flight from Minnesota to Chicago — says initial reports suggest a possible bird strike smashed the front of the plane.
But Delta works fast … a rep for the company tells us, “The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, has since been inspected and its nose cone replaced.”
Impressive since the plane was repaired roughly 48 hours after the incident.
“The damaged nose cone has been sent to a maintenance facility to undergo additional evaluation,” Delta adds.
