The Oklahoma City Thunder had a scare in the air over the weekend, when they exited the team’s plane in Chicago and saw a large dent in the nose of the aircraft.

Multiple players on the team took to social media to post images of the bizarre incident.

“What could we have possibly hit in the SKY at this time of night? Everyone is safe, though,” Carmelo Anthony wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo.

Despite how it looks, the Thunder said the team is safe and sound, and the flight landed as planned and on schedule at Midway International Airport. However, a team official said the flight was a little rough, but not extreme.

A spokesperson for Delta Air Lines said the plane “likely encountered a bird”.
