Morgan Freeman had a terrifying brief flight on Saturday that had to make an emergency landing, which ended up with his plane spinning off the runway. The actor tells Gossip Cop he landed “without a scratch,” but his private jet got banged up a bit.

Freeman said in a statement furnished to Gossip Cop: “I was on my plane on the way to Texas to shoot a segment for The Story of God.” He explained, “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off which caused other problems.” Freeman added, “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.”

Freeman was the sole passenger on a private jet that took off from an airport in Clarksdale, Mississippi and had to land at an airport not far away in Tunica. Because the tire blew out, the landing wasn’t smooth, and the plane spun off the runway and was broken up a bit as it skidded into a field.
