“It was extreme fear.” “I was shaken the most out of all I’ve experienced.”
The KIA team, who had returned home, vividly told of the time of fear they experienced in the plane in the United States due to a blizzard. The KIA team arrived at Incheon International Airport around 8:30 on the night of the 26th. It was the way home that almost suffered a major accident.
KIA, which held its first spring camp in Tucson, Arizona, USA, was scheduled to depart from Tucson Airport on the 25th Korean time, pass through LA Airport, and arrive at Incheon Airport on the early morning of the 26th.
However, the plane carrying the athletes encountered a snowstorm before landing at LA Airport. A KIA official who returned to Korea said, “I was scheduled to arrive at LA Airport around 10:00 pm local time and board a flight to Incheon at 11:30 pm. landed,” he said. 먹튀검증

Over LAX, the plane made two unsuccessful attempts to land. During this process, the team had to tremble in anxiety for 40 minutes inside the plane.
Byun Woo-hyuk, who returned to Korea, told us his vivid experience, saying, “It was much more scary than what I saw in the movie.” He said, “I was sitting by the window on the wing side, and the light on the wing side came on. When I looked when the light came on, I saw snow and rain blowing sideways (not down). When I tried to land for the second time, I really fell forward and felt like I was going to fall for a few seconds,” he explained the horror situation at the time. Not only the KIA
players, but most of the other passengers screamed and said it was a mess. But Kim Do-young was so calm. It is said that they took a video of the seniors screaming.

Meanwhile, KIA, whose return schedule was delayed, also changed the schedule for the second camp in Okinawa.

On the 27th, the coaching staff and pitching team (including some fielders) will leave the country, and the rest of the players will leave the country on the 28th.
Coach Kim Jong-guk said, “I think the first practice game against Hanwha, scheduled for the 28th, will be difficult. After that, I can do things normally.” Since then, KIA is scheduled to play against Samsung on March 1, against Lotte on the 3rd, against Samsung on the 5th, and against Hanwha on the 7th.
