Last week, Jennifer Aniston celebrated her birthday with a truly epic bash. The actress turned 50 on February 11th and threw a big party in New York that was attended by Gwyneth Paltrow, Katy Perry, and even her ex-husband Brad Pitt (god bless Kate and Gwyneth for breaking the social media ban).

Yet the star's continued birthday plans took a slightly terrifying turn yesterday. Aniston and her Friends co-star Courteney Cox were jet-setting to Mexico but were forced to make a terrifying emergency landing on Friday.

The two actresses were in Aniston’s private jet bound for Cabo San Lucas around 11 a.m. when the plane lost a wheel during take-off at LAX airport, according to the FAA.

The plane made it down to Mexican airspace but turned around back to Ontario, California after crew members deemed it wasn't safe to land.

The aircraft was forced to circle in the area for roughly three hours in order to burn off enough fuel to land the plane safely in Canada, according to Fox11.

All 12 passengers on board are reportedly safe. Aniston and Cox were joined by screenwriter Molly Kimmel and actress Amanda Anka on the flight. Everyone eventually boarded a bigger plane that took them to their destination.

We're glad everyone is safe.
