Flyers take Clinton campaign plane to Alabama

1 Comment

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign came to an end last week, but its remnants found their way into the world of college basketball this week.

Dayton’s charter flight Monday to Tuscaloosa to face Alabama was the former Secretary of State’s campaign plane, the Dayton Daily News reports.

While there was a political statement emblazoned on the side of the plane, it wasn’t any type of statement by the Flyers. They booked the flight through a charter company, who provides whatever aircraft are available to them to meet the needs of the traveling party. The plane Dayton took was a Boeing 737-800.

The Flyers had better luck than the Clinton campaign, beating the Tide, 77-72, on Tuesday afternoon.
