BLOGS OF THE DAY: Morgan Freeman protected after personal aircraft crash.

Actor Morgan Freeman was uninjured Saturday after the private plane he was flying in blew a tire after takeoff from a Mississippi airport and had to make an emergency landing, authorities said. Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett, a longtime friend of Freeman, told the Associated Press the aircraft made what he described as a controlled forced landing just before dark on Saturday at an airport in Tunica after it had taken off from Clarksdale.

Freeman released a statement saying he was headed to Texas to shoot a segment for the series “The Story of God.” He says, “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on takeoff, which caused other problems.” He says they “landed safely without a scratch.” He says he can’t say the same about his plane. Both cities are near each other in northwestern Mississippi, with Tunica about 40 miles southwest of Memphis, Tennessee, and one sheriff’s official said the plane went off the runway after landing.

Luckett says Freeman and the pilot were aboard the flight that originated in Clarksdale, and another plane was en route to Tunica, the landing site, to pick Freeman up. He has been nominated for five Academy awards and won a best supporting actor Oscar for his role in Clint Eastwood’s 2004 film Million Dollar Baby.
