Country superstars Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan revealed that the plane they were flying in after a duck hunting trip was forced to make an emergency landing on Monday due to equipment issues.

In a live-stream video posted by Bryan on Instagram, the country music singers can be seen sitting in a Dairy Queen drive-thru as they revealed that things went sideways on Sunday when they were flying back home from St. Louis.

“We duck hunted this morning,” Bryan said. “We flew to St. Louis. We landed. We did the ATA Show with Buck Commander.”

“And we were supposed to get back on the plane, fly back, it was gonna be a 30-minute flight,” Aldean interjected. “Easy, easy.”

Despite Bryan’s jovial attitude he admitted things got “tense” up in the air.

“Well we took off and it was so cold,” the “American Idol” judge said. “In St. Louis it’s like, 16 degrees, wind was blowing 40 miles an hour. Some of the instruments on the plane were not (working)…so we had to turn and land. And yeah, it was a little tense.”


Aldean described just how scary the situation became.

“Our plane, we thought, was gonna fall out of the sky,” Aldean said, as the two revealed the forced landing resulted in them renting a car to get back.

“Now we’re on I-55, at a Dairy Queen, we’re getting some chicken fingers, I just peed beside the road, and Jason’s the driver,” Bryan said. 

Aldean replied, “Because I don’t trust you to drive.”

The two concluded the video with sharing how they still had about an hour-and-a-half drive back and seemed noticeably relieved to be out of that plane.

Luckily, the country singers flight was able to land with no one being injured and the problem seemed to not be as serious as others have experienced recently in midflight. Alaska Airlines made headlines recently when the wall of the plane flew off shortly after takeoff, forcing it to make an emergency landing.

“AS1282 from Portland to Ontario, CA experienced an incident this evening soon after departure,” a post on X from the airline read. “The aircraft landed safely back at Portland International Airport with 171 guests and 6 crew members. We are investigating what happened and will share more as it becomes available.”
