Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and some of their friends were on the way to, where else, Cabo San Lucas (does she have some kind of deal with the tourism board?) to keep her 50th birthday celebrations going. But things got off to a messy start hen the private plane they were flying on had to make an emergency landing. They blamed it on some sort of mechanical issue but you know it was because Chelsea Handler found out there was only one handle of vodka aboard for the 2.5 hour flight and that won’t do. Aniston was probably just settling into low-key convo about eye fillers when she probably heard “Turn this boat, around, Aniston, cuz’ I’ve already gone through that bullshit size bottle of Absolut in the bar AND the bottle in my carry-on!” from the hag in back.
Actually, TMZ reports that the gang (including Jimmy Kimmel’s wife Molly Kimmel and Jason Bateman’s wife Amanda Anka…and no Brad Pitt) had to land and deplane because a wheel fell off. They don’t tighten these things with a tire iron or something?
The flight took off from LAX at 11 AM Friday heading for Cabo San Lucas, but lost a wheel or a tire during takeoff … according to the FAA.
The flight had to land in Ontario, CA, which is about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. But they had a problem (aside from Chelsea Handler getting the DTs, I kid). The plane had a full fuel tank and that’s sketchy when landing.
The plane circled for hours to burn off fuel before it was deemed safe to land … and the captain put it down safely at 2:05 PM.
And there ain’t no way in hell you’re going to hold back Aniston from getting ahold of a Cabo Wabo margarita. Especially when she just had a birthday part chalk full of her exes (including THAT guy), and that must have been taxing on the mind and nostalgic on the genitals and that’s a lot. So the ladies immediately got on to another private jet and were off and have since landed in Mexico. Hopefully, they got a guy to taxi out some more vodka. Seriously, Chelsea Handler would probably take the pilot hostage if the mini-bar ran dry.
