787 after an encounter with a hailstorm.

This 787 hit a huge hailstorm at cruising altitude and had to make an emergency landing in Denver.  This guy is going to need a nose job.  With that kind of substantial damage, it seems very fortunate that all the air data probes on the outside of the fuselage (the dots right above the nose gear) weren't damaged.
