Miami Heat plane lands safely after having 'flap issue' on a wing
Call it karma. Feel free to snark that the Miami Heat hasn't gotten off the runway at all this season. Or that the team's airplane, like the Heat, is all engine and no flaps.
The team's airplane experienced mechanical problems en route from Miami to Cleveland for LeBronmageddon/LeBroncalypse/LeBronnukah/just another NBA game tonight against the Cavaliers.
A member of the crew of the Heat's plane reported a "flap issue" on a wing early Thursday on its approach to Cleveland Hopkins airport, airport spokeswoman Jackie Mayo said. Two fire trucks were sent out to the runway, which is standard procedure, after the alert was issued. The plane landed safely at 2:30 a.m. EST, Mayo said.
So, the game, LeBron James' first in Cleveland since he opted to take his talents to South Beach, is on.
