Chris Brown‘s private plane filled with smoke outside of Burbank, California shortly after take-off yesterday and had to make an emergency landing. What a shame. Not that it happened, but that Chris Brown didn’t jump out with a parachute to save himself, only to find that the ripcord was broken. I think you get my point.
A private jet carrying Chris Brown was forced to make an emergency landing in Burbank yesterday after the cockpit filled with smoke after takeoff … TMZ has learned.
We’ve confirmed … Brown boarded a Gulfstream 3 jet in Burbank and was headed for Teterboro, NJ … so he could attend the Met Gala event.
But sources tell us … roughly 7 to 8 minutes into the flight, everyone on board began to notice smoke filling the plane.
One source told us, “It was A LOT of smoke … everywhere.”
The pilot immediately turned the plane around and performed an emergency landing back at Burbank airport.
We’re told the passengers were scared … but the pilot was cool, calm and collected … and couldn’t have handled the situation better.
Here’s the crazy part — after the plane touched down, Brown decided he STILL wanted to get to the Met Gala event in NY … and boarded ANOTHER private jet within an hour of touching down.
