Damaged airliner

Aviation officials are examining the nose cone of an airliner that was mysteriously damaged Sunday on a flight from Detroit to Tampa.

The nose of a Northwest Airlines Boeing 757 was crumpled, but the plane landed safely at it's destination. No one was injured.

What's curious is that Federal Aviation Officials today ruled out the possibility of a bird strike. Pilots said they heard a bang at 18,000 feet, apparently too high for a bird.
The investigation continues.
