A charter plane carrying the Miami Heat experienced a scary moment Wednesday night as they arrived in Milwaukee, WI.
The aircraft slid on the runway due to icy conditions around 9 p.m. local time. No one was injured on board the Boeing 737 and the team tweeted a message that everyone was able to get off the plane without a problem.
Upon landing in Milwaukee tonight the team plane slid while taxiing but never left the pavement. Everyone on board has deplaned and is ok. — Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) January 12, 2017
Several flights were cancelled or delayed into the airport due to the weather. The Heat flew in from Oakland, CA – where they lost Tuesday night to the Golden State Warriors – in advance of their game Friday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
They are the second professional sports team to have an issue with a flight into Wisconsin. A private charter carrying the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings slid off the runway during snowy conditions December 23rd when landing in Green Bay ahead of their game with the Packers.
