Scheels to buy plane NDSU leases
FARGO - A controversial private airplane leased by North Dakota State University will be sold, as state legislators critical of the plane have advocated.
But one of NDSU's top donors is set to buy it and arrange a charter agreement giving the university access to the aircraft.
North Dakota legislators approved a state law earlier this year requiring NDSU's private nonprofit fundraising group, the NDSU Development Foundation, to sell the airplane it leases to the university.
