Jason Momoa had a little bit of a scare Wednesday when his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing.

Momoa said in his Instagram stories, "Half hour out of Palm Springs, and the plane wanted to start a fire."  He also shared footage of the fire department's trucks nearby, saying, "Gotta love 'em."

Though there was a scare the plane's engine caught on fire, it turns out it was a false alarm.  

Had an Aircraft emergency today. Reported engine fire with @prideofgypsies on board. ARFF Engineer Andy Meza told his crew, “Not on my watch boys...not on my watch”. Turned out to be a false alarm but the ARFF Lads were on the ready. It’s always nice to meet cool people. #aquaman #palmsprings #firefighters #bestjobintheworld #ARFF #visitpalmsprings #local3601 #engine #truck #chiefmiller

Another plane was on hand to take Momoa to his destination Phoenix, where he visited Love Cycles, a motorcycle shop that was helping him build his "dream bike."
