Uh-Oh: Miami Heat’s Plane Had A ‘Wing Flap’ Issue Prior To Landing In Cleveland

Put on your tin foil hats, folks, the conspiracy theorists are going to have a field day with this one. While the Heat’s plane thankfully landed safely at Cleveland’s Hopkins Airport sometime around 2:30 a.m. last night, it has been reported that there the pilots had to deal with some mechanical issues as it made its approach.

Via Cleveland.com:

Jackie Mayo, a spokeswoman for Cleveland Hopkins airport, says the crew of the Heat’s plane reported a wing “flap issue” early Thursday as the aircraft was on its approach. An alert was issued at the airport and two fire trucks were sent out to the runway, which is standard procedure.

Weird, wild stuff, man. I mean, what are the odds of something like this happening? They have to be slim to none, right?

Boy, in light of the way the impending LeBronaclypse has begun, we have all the makings of helluva day in Cleveland. I do, however, have one question regarding the alert that was issued: was it transmitted electronically? And if so, was the font used in said alert Comic Sans?

The truth is out there.
