‘I was on my plane on the way to Texas to shoot a segment for The Story of God.
Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch.
I cannot say the same about my plane.’
After the tire blowout, TMZ reports that the pilot had to make an emergency landing in Tunica, 36 miles away from where the Houston-bound jet took off in Clarksdale. The plane – which is believed to be owned by the Oscar winner – veered off the end of the runway and into a dirt field after landing.
In September of last year, Freeman safely landed his private jet – which he was piloting – after it began malfunctioning en route to the Toronto International Film Festival.
Back in 2008, Freeman was seriously injured in a car crash when the vehicle he was driving flipped multiple times on a Mississippi highway. The actor still wears a compression glove on his paralyzed left hand, which supports the hand and puts pressure on it to increase blood flow to stop blood from pooling there.
