Mike Conley noticed a flock of geese in the distance, but didn’t think much of it. Delta flight 8944 took off from runway 35 on the east side of the airport. Just 10 minutes into the climb—before the comfort of cruising altitude: BANG, BANG, BANG. “What the f— was that? What just hit the plane?” Georges Niang said to Joe Ingles, in the next seat. Turbulence doesn’t sound like that. Niang’s brain scrambled to make any sense of it. What sounded like that? His initial thought: a rocket.
As the Utah Jazz’s team charter plane tried to make an emergency landing after birds struck the plane’s engine on Tuesday afternoon, members of the organization could not help but think about the worst-case scenario. “For a good 10-15 minutes, I think all of us on that flight were questioning whether we were going to be here today,” Jazz guard Mike Conley said following the team’s 111-107 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. “That’s how serious it was for us. I can’t speak for everybody. But I know guys were trying to text family just in case. It was that kind of situation.”
