Mlsnet.com is reporting that the Columbus Crew team plane last Sunday had some serious issues landing as it came across Hurricane Ike in the middle of itâ€™s scheduled approach.
â€śWhen you have no control of the plane when you're in the middle of a hurricane it's not that much fun to be in," defender Danny O'Rourke said.
Pat Noonan explained the scene similar to what was captured in the movie Almost Famous: "That was frightening but we made it through it. We learned a little bit about each other on that flight such as who can handle a flight like that and who can't. Not many people can but, there's a couple of guys who kept the spirits up. There was a lot of silence, though."
Noonan continued: "Knowing once the wheels went back up -- because the wheels were out to land -- and when they went back up we knew something was wrong. The turbulence was the worst I've been a part of and not many parts of that flight were fun towards the end.â€ť
One thing the plane didnâ€™t do was affect the teams playing ability as they beat New York 3-1 with both feet firmly on the ground.
