Jennifer Aniston’s private plane had to make an emergency landing while the actress was on her way to Cabo. Aniston has previously revealed she has a fear of flying.
While Aniston was headed to Cabo for her birthday trip, her private jet suffered from some complications. She ended up having to make an emergency landing while in the air and return back to the ground.
Everyone in the plane, including the actress who recently turned 50-years-old, touched the ground safely. According to a source that spoke to E!, both Courtney Cox and Molly Kimmel were on the plane with Aniston.
An FAA spokesperson revealed that a plane with a “tail number N729TY, lost a wheel or tire while departing from LAX. The aircraft departed without incident and circled near Ontario International Airport (ONT) to burn fuel.”
The spokesperson added that “The plane landed at ONT without incident, with the gear down, shortly after 2 p.m.” The Ontario Airport is 60 miles east of LAX. Aniston and her friends got on board another flight from Ontario which will get them to Cabo, according to reports.
The actress has often discussed how terrified she is of flying, saying on the UK show Lorraine in 2013, “Flying. You can’t get a big enough drink and it doesn’t help. I’ve actually gotten much better.”
She also told London Free Press the experience she had had with British Airways while filming Horrible Bosses 2, saying, “It said ‘Flying With Confidence’ and I was like, ‘I’d like to fly with confidence—badly’, so, after the meal… I turn on this video and this lovely British Airways pilot comes on and just starts talking in this lovely voice about how ‘my safety and my comfort is their utmost priority’, and the turbulence is ‘just like a bumpy road; it’s totally safe’.”
She added, “By the end of it… he says, ‘Our flight staff is totally prepared for heart attacks, panic attacks, births…’ and now I’m actually crying… I get up and I’m in the galley with everybody going like, ‘Hi, so I have a real fear of flying…’ and they do give you all this TLC; they check in on you.”
Aniston recently turned 50 years old.
