BATON ROUGE – The LSU Gymnastics team’s departure to Texas for Nationals was waylaid Tuesday after their plane got stuck on a runway at the Baton Rouge Airport.

Flight data shows the team’s plane was set to leave at 2:40 p.m. Tuesday with arrival originally set for 3:40 p.m. in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Officials at the airport say the Breeze Airways flight carrying the team got one of its landing gear stuck in a grassy stretch along a taxiway just before takeoff. Breeze is reportedly working to bring in another aircraft to pick up the team. 

This is a developing story.
