Delta 752 with a broken nose

Operating DL8935 charter for the Oklahoma City Thunder. More info:

I'm guessing the "no injuries" excludes the bird that struck the plane

I am in Berlin and was relieved to hear the Thunder were okay and that they actually won a game last night.

It looks like that was quite a big bird.

most likely a radome implosion, not a bird strike.

Often there are quite evident bird remains when a nosecone strike occurs.
