Morgan Freeman in near miss as private jet crash lands.

“But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch,” he added. “I cannot say the same about my plane. The 78-year-old star hired a private jet to carry him from Clarksdale, Mississippi to Houston, Texas but was forced into a crash landing after one of the plane’s tyre’s blew out. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety.” Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett, a friend of Freeman’s, confirmed to the Associated Press that the plane made a controlled forced landing at a Tunica airport shortly before sunset Saturday. Freeman was the only passenger on-board and walked away from the incident unscathed after his pilot managed to touch the stricken aircraft down safely.

The Shawshank star released a statement shortly after the incident, saying that he took the flight to Texas to film a segment for the series “The Story of God.” Freeman, who won an Oscar in 2004 for his performance in Million Dollar Baby, was not piloting the aircraft, which veered off the runway, authorities said.
