Aquaman actor Jason Momoa’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing over fears of an engine fire.

The 39-year-old actor said on Instagram that 30 minutes after taking off from Palm Springs in California, the “the plane wanted to start a fire” and had to land.

Momoa shared a video from the runway showing fire service trucks parked nearby, and joked: “Looks like we’re driving.”
