Actresses Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox along with other friends were forced to make an emergency plane landing on their journey to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Us Weekly reveals.
The former Friends stars were heading on a group vacation when their private jet lost a wheel during takeoff at around 11 a.m.
The aircraft rerouted to Ontario, California, but had to circle in the air for hours to burn fuel so they could land safely. The plane was reportedly wobbly once it hit the runway, but there were no injuries, according to CBS.
“She’s going to take a new plane from Ontario to Cabo later today,” the insider told Us.
Another source told the publication that Jimmy Kimmel’s wife, Molly Kimmel, and film producer Kristin Hahn were also on the 10-passenger trip. The two ladies worked with Aniston on her 2018 Netflix film Dumplin’. Amanda Anka, who is married to Aniston’s Horrible Bosses co-star Jason Bateman, was another passenger.
Earlier in the week, Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday with a lush West Hollywood party which included a star-studded guest list with celebs like Brad Pitt, John Mayer, Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney, Kate Hudson, Katy Perry and Gwyneth Paltrow in attendance.
The actress “mostly mingled with her girlfriends” at the event, according to an insider. “Jen spoke to Brad briefly. At one point she hugged him and thanked him for coming,” the source told Us.
“It didn’t seem like that big of a deal to Jen. The invite went out to a ton of people and he accepted. She was happy he was there, but that was it. She was busy making the rounds and excited to see so many people near and dear to her.”
