Jackson Rathbone Plane


Jackson Rathbone had some scary moments on Thursday when his plane made an emergency landing after one of the engines exploded.

The Twilight actor was with his wife Sheila Hafsadi and their son Monroe on a JetBlue flight for Austin, Texas when things got a little terrifying.

When the plane’s engine exploded and the cabin filled with smoke, it was forced to land in Long Beach, California, where Rathbone and other passengers went down an inflated ramp to safety.

At least one person was reportedly hospitalized, but there were fortunately no serious injuries.

Rathbone documented the entire incident on his WhoSay account (see below).

“I just couldn’t stop kissing my family and thanking my God,” he wrote.

Gossip Cop is glad everyone is safe.
