Vikings Plane Troubles Called "Atypical"

There's no way to tell if being stuck on a stuck plane impacted the way the Minnesota Vikings played at Lambeau Field Saturday.

The team plane with 150 people on board slid off the taxiway and players, coaches and staff were stranded for three hours. The first players arrived at the team hotel more than five hours after they had landed at Appleton International Airport. A mobile stairwell to fit the Airbus 330 wasn't available. Airport director Abe Weber called the situation "atypical." He says there was constant communication between the people stranded on the plane and the workers trying to get them off.
