Michigan Basketball Team Plane Slides Off The Runway (Pics + Vid)
The Michigan men’s basketball team was all set to head to the Big 10 tournament when a scary runway mishap left them flustered and looking for a new mode of transport to get to the game.
Their plane was unable to take off (the reason still isn’t clear), and ended up dropping off the end of the runway. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but the incident left many shaken and thankful that things weren’t a lot worse.
Here are a couple intense images from the scene after the wreck:

They headed out to the tourney later, presumably no worse for the wear. Hopefully, this misfortune will remind many why you keep your seatbelt on during “routine” takeoffs.
The Michigan players didn’t take their good fortune for granted:
God. Is. Good.
