Morgan Freeman Made an Emergency Landing With His Private Jet

  • What aircraft Morgan Freeman purchased
  • The details of his forced landing in Clarksdale, Mississippi

Morgan Freeman has purchased an SJ30 aircraft, produced by Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation, a US-based manufacturer and subsidiary of Emivest. Freemans SJ30 is known as the worlds “fastest, longest-range and highest-flying light jet” on the market. The SJ30 can maintain sea-level cabin pressure at 41,000 feet and has a top cruising altitude of 49,000 feet. In 2015, Morgan Freeman’s private jet had to make a forced landing in Clarksdale, Mississippi. A tire flew off the aircraft while taking off, causing the aircraft to make a forced landing back on the TARMAC. 

In a statement, Freeman said: “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.” Freeman was on his way the Texas to film a National Geographic’sThe Story of God” but the plane had to make a forced landing which delayed the filming. Luckily, the 78 year old actor and the crew around him suffered no injuries.
