The Copperfield emergency landing has nothing to do with a magic trick. David Copperfield was faced with a very serious situation when the plane he was on was forced to make an emergency landing. On March 4, E! Online reported that Copperfield tweeted about a flight he was on and a situation that he calls "so scary."
"Everyone is ok. Emergency landing in Peoria, Illinois. So scary," said Copperfield. There was a "loud noise" during the flight before the pilot announced that the plane would be making an emergency landing at nearby Peoria airport. The plane was on its way to New York City from Las Vegas.
Copperfield's plane's emergency landing forced him to appear on "The Today Show" remotely. He was scheduled to be in the studio but he did not make it because of a problem with the plane. He spoke about the frightening experience while on the air this morning.
"We were 37,000 feet in the air and I recorded (the strange noise) because it was lasting for a long time. I heard this sound (crackling), and it wouldn't stop. I felt kind of freaked out and they told us we have to go back for our descent. We were going in a spiral with G-force, and we finally got to the ground ... and it turned out there was snow all around," Copperfield explained.
More Copperfield emergency landing details have yet to surface. It is unknown what happened to the plane or what the loud noise was. Several media outlets have confirmed that this was a private jet, not a commercial airliner.
