A hailstorm crushed the nose of an American Airlines plane.

The Phoenix-bound flight had to make an emergency landing in El Paso, Texas on Sunday night.

No injuries were reported.

An airline spokesman says windshield panels and a cockpit side window were also damaged, but the engines, including the fan blades, were intact.
