Country Stars Derailed by Emergency Landing

( – A scary situation unfolded on January 15 when a plane carrying country megastars Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan had to turn back and make an emergency landing in St. Louis. The two men provided a detailed account of the incident during a live-stream on Instagram while waiting in the drive-thru for food at Dairy Queen. After a successful duck hunting excursion with Buck Commander, the pair flew to St. Louis to attend the Archery Trade Association’s annual show. Afterward, they took off on a 30-minute flight back to duck camp. Bryan recounted the incident, stating, “In St. Louis, it’s like 16 degrees, wind was blowing 40 miles an hour.” He then revealed that the airplane had an equipment malfunction that forced it to turn back around.

Aldean chimed in and said, “Our plane, we thought, was gonna fall out of the sky.” Bryan interjected, noting that they decided to drive back and were heading down Interstate 55, but stopped to get some food. He said that Aldean was driving, to which Aldean replied that he did not trust Bryan to get behind the wheel. The two men were shaken up by the incident, but glad to be off the plane. Their longtime friendship was evident in the stream, and fans watching were glad the pair landed safely. However, many were more concerned with seeing how the drive-thru workers reacted to seeing them.

Airplane malfunctions and airline policies have been at the forefront over the last several months. On January 5, an Alaskan Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a portion of the plane broke off. The Boeing 737 Max 9 was carrying 171 passengers, many of whom thought they were going to die after oxygen masks were deployed. The plane was at 12,000 feet when it turned around and successfully landed at Portland International Airport. Following the incident, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded the Boeing 737 Max 9 indefinitely. Investigators believe that the incident was the result of missing or improperly installed bolts on the door plug. The FAA has conducted 40 inspections but did not indicate that the planes would be back in the air anytime soon.
