The Minnesota Vikings are anticipating an exciting game at Green Bay this weekend, but their arrival included a little more excitement than they were looking for.

The plane carrying players and staff slid off the runway at the Appleton International Airport at about 5:30 p-m Friday. The plane was on the taxiway headed for an arrival gate when a rear tire slid off the pavement and got stuck. It took more than three hours to get the Vikings off the stranded plane.
