Fearing it might be a bad omen, a college basketball team was surprised upon discovering the jet they chartered was the plane used for Hillary Clinton’s doomed presidential campaign.
The Dayton Flyers chartered a plane to travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and were shocked when they got to the airport to find the slogan “Stronger Together” and the Clinton campaign website painted on the side of the jet, according to Dayton Daily News.
Since the campaign was only over but a week ago the jet charter company hadn’t the time to repaint the exterior of the jet before it was set up for the team’s use.
Larry Hansgen, the team’s radio broadcaster, tweeted a photo of the plane.

Some players may have been unhappy with the bad omen of flying on a loser’s plane, but as it turns out the team won its away game in Alabama beating the Crimson Tide 77-72.
As the folks at Barstool Sports joked, “At least it got to carry a winner up to 30,000 feet for once?”
