Aquaman star Jason Momoa’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing over fears the engine was on fire.
The 39-year-old posted about Wednesday’s incident on Instagram: “Half an hour out of Palm Springs and the plane wanted to start a fire… Looks like we’re driving.”
Momoa, who also played Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, shared a video from the runway of fire engines parked nearby.
Luckily, it was a false alarm and the local fire department shared a picture of one of their members with Momoa.

Had an Aircraft emergency today. Reported engine fire with @prideofgypsies on board. ARFF Engineer Andy Meza told his crew, “Not on my watch boys…not on my watch”. Turned out to be a false alarm but the ARFF Lads were on the ready. It’s always nice to meet cool people. #aquaman #palmsprings #firefighters #bestjobintheworld #ARFF #visitpalmsprings #local3601 #engine #truck #chiefmiller
