Morgan Freeman unhurt after his plane burst it’s tire forcing emergency landing

Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman was aboard a plane that had to make an emergency landing in Mississippi after blowing a tire, but nobody including the actor was hurt in the incident.
The SJ30 jet took off from Clarksdale and made a “controlled forced landing” in Tunica. In a statement, Freeman, 78, said he had been traveling to Texas to shoot a segment for the National Geographic series The Story of God when the incident happened.
“Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on takeoff, which caused other problems,” he said in a statement to AP. “But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch.”

He added: “I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety.”
In September last year, Freeman was at the wheels of a private jet when it started malfunctioning on his way to the Toronto Film Festival. he was able to land it safely. In 2008, a car he was riding flipped multiple times but he survived, he was however left with nerve damage in his left hand and still wears a compression glove to keep blood flow in the hand going.
