The Miami Dolphins’ rough preseason continued late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning, as the team plane was involved in a minor plane crash in Dallas when it “clipped wings with another American Airlines aircraft while backing out,” according to broadcaster Joe Rose, who was on the plane. From the Sun-Sentinel:
“It rocked the entire plane,” Rose said on his sports radio show (WQAM 560-AM) early Thursday morning. “It was totally crazy. I just couldn’t believe it.”
Rose, a former Dolphins tight end, said there were no injuries reported but there was significant damage to the plane.
Rose also said HBO’s “Hard Knocks” crew was on board and began filming the incident for the final episode, set to air next Tuesday.
Rose said the team was stranded for three hours at the airport early Thursday morning until they could board a replacement plane.
“So tired and haven’t even left Dallas yet,” receiver Brian Hartline said on Twitter. “Aaaaand the rumor is we backed into another plane… On the runway #awesome! Anyone else awake?”
