    Default Reshaped Nose Cone on Oklahoma Thunder NBA Basketball Charter

    This incident involved the Oklahoma Thunder NBA Basketball team and there seems to be a bit of a mystery as to the cause:

    Some accounts I've read seemed to indicate that it happened very high - 30K feet. I'm curious - at what height do you pilots stop worrying about birds?

    What are your theories as to what caused this?

    Thanks!

    I sort of answered my own question with regard to how high birds can fly - pretty interesting article. Net/net, some can fly high - like AMAZINGLY high!
