Morgan Freeman's Private Plane Makes Emergency Landing & Skids Off Runway

Morgan Freeman had a frightening flight when his private jet had to make an emergency landing on Saturday evening (December 5).

The 78-year-old actor was on a flight out of Mississippi but due to a tire issue the plane was forced to land at a nearby airport, according to TMZ.

When the pilot tried to make an emergency landing, the jet didn’t stop at the end of the runway and ended up in a dirt field.

“I was on my plane on the way to Texas to shoot a segment for The Story of God. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson, we landed safely without a scratch. I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety,” Morgan told GossipCop.

Thankfully, no one was hurt!
