Jackson Rathbone and his family were traveling from Long Beach, Calif to Austin, Texas when their plane had to make an emergency landing on Thursday (September 18) after an engine exploded mid-air! Talk about frightening!
The 29-year-old Twilight star took to Twitter and his WhoSay account to document the horrifying experience.
“We were on @jetblue flight 1416 to Austin from Long Beach. Our right engine exploded and our cabin filled with smoke,” he tweeted. “The oxygen masks did not deploy, but the brave stewardesses came around and manually deployed them. It was rough, the plane was rocking…”
Jackson continued, “I recited the Lord’s Prayer as I held my son and my wife in my arms. The pilot came on the PA and let us know we lost the right engine. We were told to brace as we careened sharply back towards land. Guided by our pilot, and I believe our guardian angels, we landed safely.”
We are so happy to hear that everyone is safe!
