JENNIFER LAWRENCE UNSCATHED AFTER PRIVATE JET ENGINES FAIL
The actress was in Louisville, Kentucky, visiting family this weekend and took off back toward New Jersey. While at 31,000 feet, one of the craft’s engines failed, causing the pilots to make an emergency landing. During the landing, the plane’s other engine also failed.
The FAA, which normally does not disclose information of passengers on flights, released a statement about the incident. “A Hawker Beechcraft B40 aircraft landed safely at Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York at about 1:40 pm on Saturday,” the statement read. “The crew diverted to Buffalo when they declared an emergency due to engine-related issues. The flight was heading to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey from Louisville, Kentucky.” The FAA is investigating the incident.
ABC News aviation expert Col. Steve Ganyard said that this is an “extremely rare” occasion. “Airplanes have two engines because occasionally one fails, but two are not supposed to fail,” he said. “But anytime you have both engines on a twin engine airplane stop working, it obviously has the potential for disaster.”
