It is not the first time that commerial aircraft are hit by unknown objects during flights at high altitude. The latest mysterious incident happened a few days ago when a Delta flight 1076 from West Palm Beach to LGA diverted to JFK on July 6, 2020 after it was hit by an unknown object with such a force that it damaged the nose cone of the plane. 43 passengers were aboard. The flight landed safely and without incident.

The airline initially said the damage was the result of a bird strike, but later they determined that it was a hail storm that struck the plane which caused the damage on the nose cone.
Now, If you compare the windscreen of Delta flight 1076 with another aircraft that has experienced a similar accident before, then you see that the windscreen of Delta flight 1076 is not damaged while the other plane\\\’s windscreen is completely shattered by hail.
So, if it was really a hailstorm then, besides the damaged nose cone, the windshield of Delta flight 1076 should also be shattered and that is not the case.
A bird? Well, it must have been a very large one to cause such a damage to the plane.
In short, it is not clear what hit the plane, but could it have been a U̳F̳O̳ or UAP, for example something like a “fastwalker”?
