Wow! It sounds like Dwight Yoakam has an extra special something to be thankful for this Christmas ... like the fact that he didn't die in a fiery plane crash.
TMZ is reporting that while on the way from a private concert in Canada recently, the plane that Dwight was on caught fire while in the air.
Okay, it didn’t actually catch fire, but there was a lot of smoke and the pilot thought it was on fire, which was probably just as scary as if it had actually burst into flames.
The pilot called in a mayday and landed safely at Van Nuys Airport in California. All nine passengers on board the twin-engine Hawker 800 jet were safe, but firefighters had cleared the runways and were on the scene just in case.
Yikes. Can you imagine?
