Here’s everything to know…

Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox never fail to make news, from their double dates to their mini Friends reunions, with the most recent taking place at Jen’s 50th birthday party.

This week however the onscreen (and real life) BFFs made news for the wrong reasons as their plane was forced to make a terrifying emergency landing.

The pair were travelling to Mexico on Friday aboard a private jet to see in Jen’s birthday in Cabo San Lucas, joined by their inner circle, including Screenwriter Molly Kimmel and actress Amanda Anka.

A mechanical issue however reportedly happened during take off, relating to one of the tyres on the landing gear.

The jet was forced to make an emergency landing in California’s Ontario International Airport, with USA Today reporting that the 2pm landing was ’slightly shaky but successful’.

The plane had to circle the area for approximately three hours before they could land safely, in order to burn off enough fuel, according to Fox11, and the airport is reported to have been shut down specifically.

All 12 passengers onboard have been reported safe and Jen’s birthday group is said to have boarded a bigger plane to make it to their destination.

We hope they have a relaxing holiday after all that drama!
