NBA star Carmelo Anthony shared an incredible image of a dented plane… AFTER it had landed on Friday night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were travelling from Minneapolis to Chicago when their plane appeared to hit something gigantic mid-air.

While it is currently unclear what exactly happened, ten-time NBA All-Star Anthony showed-off the image of the plane with a severely dented nose.

Anthony captioned the bonkers snap: “What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night?

“Everyone is Safe, Though. All Praise Due. #ThunderStrong”

The Thunder team had been travelling from Minneapolis to Chicago, with Melo sharing the image after landing.

Fortunately, Anthony did reveal everyone was safe – a fact that was backed up by Thunder beat writer Erik Horne.

He tweeted: “Thunder players, staff and coaches did make it safely to Chicago and is en route to their hotel, I’m told.”

Anthony’s Thunder team-mate Steven Adams also took to social media to share his confusion over the incident.

The New Zealander tweeted NASA and famous scientists Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye.

Hey @NASA @neiltyson @BillNye
We had a rough flight to say the least.
