An Air China Boeing 757 has been reported hit by a 'foreign object' while flying at 26,000 feet.

The passenger jet had to make an emergency landing when n unidentified “foreign object” smashed into its nose cone - leavign a large dent and scraped paintwork.

Investigators are said to be baffled by the dent, reportedly ruling out a bird strike as no blood or feathers were seen around the impact site, but insisting traces of whatever caused the damage are likely to be found under closer inspection.

The real cause of the impact may never be known, however, as Air China has not confirmed if it will make any investigation results public.
