Dwight Yoakam’s plane was on fire … IN THE AIR! That mayday call from the pilot triggered an emergency at Van Nuys Airport, where the runway was cleared and the fire department nervously waited.
Yoakam and 9 others were on board the twin-engine Hawker 800 jet when the pilot called the tower to report an engine fire.
The plane landed safely … turns out there was a lot of smoke but no fire.
So glad everyone landed safely! What a scary situation!
