What started as a terrifying event that could have delivered a whole mishap transformed into a bother and nightmarish Friday evening that has entirely summed up 2016 for the Minnesota Vikings.
While taxiing after a safe landing in Appleton, Wisconsin, the Vikings’ group plane slid off the runway and got to be distinctly stuck, the group declared. The Vikings confronted an extra two-hour tend to the aircraft after the episode, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported, before a firetruck was dispatched to cart the passengers off the plane.

Linebacker Chad Greenway gave his online networking taking after a first-individual ordeal of what it resembles to be saved from a stationary plane by means of a flame stepping stool, two at once. Brian Robison contributed with his very own video, highlighting stepping stool pal Cordarrelle Patterson. Lastly, just before midnight eastern (and a little more than 12 hours from kickoff), the group’s record tweeted that the Vikings were indeed off the plane.

Those media guides merited a superior destiny. Maybe an airplane terminal Santa could overcome the icy, figure out how to get onto the plane and spare a square.
Here’s a sampling of what Vikings players were sharing via web-based networking media of what likely will be one street trip they’ll always remember:
