Michigan Basketball Plane Aborts Takeoff In High Winds, Goes Off Runway, Rips Through Fence, Sustains ‘Extensive Damage’

The Michigan basketball team is safe after the team’s charter plane slid off the runway during an aborted takeoff today due to high winds — gusts over 60 mph have been reported in the Ann Arbor/Detroit area. As you can see from the photos, the plane skidded over an embankment and came to a stop.

The team was flying out of Willow Run Airport, which is in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
