Jason Momoa‘s has a scary experience Wednesday when his plane was forced to make an emergency landing.

The 39-year-old actor shared a video of himself on his Instagram Stories in which he explained, “We got ourselves a slight delay.”

“Half an hour out of Palm Springs and the plane wanted to start a fire,” he said. “So, uh, yeah. Good old fire department, gotta love them. Looks like we’re driving.”

Momoa shared a video of the fire department but later shared the plane was back up and running again.

“All right round two. Got the pack. Friends came to pick me up,” he said.

The Aquaman star posed alongside a Palm Springs firefighter. The department shared the photo through its Instagram page.

“Had an Aircraft emergency today. Reported engine fire with @prideofgypsies on board,” the caption read. “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,” the caption read.

Momoa is the most recent star to have aircraft problems. Jennifer Aniston’s private plane was also forced to make an emergency landing in February as she and her friends, including Courteney Cox, tried to fly to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for her 50th birthday.

Her plane landed at the Ontario International Airport in Ontario, California.

A statement released by the airport revealed there were problems with the plane’s landing gear.

“A Gulfstream aircraft with 10 passengers and two flight crew members on board landed without incident at Ontario International Airport (ONT) after experiencing landing gear difficulty,” the statement read.

“The plane was en route Friday from Los Angeles International Airport to Cabo San Lucas when it was discovered that one of the four rear tires had displaced,” the statement continued. “The aircraft landed safely at ONT around 2 p.m. Friday.”
