Leonardo DiCaprio was on the Moscow-bound plane that had to make an emergency landing Sunday at New York City's JFK airport.
“En route to attend the Tiger Summit in St. Petersburg, Leonardo DiCaprio was one of the passengers aboard Delta Flight 30,” his rep tells The Hollywood Reporter. “He wishes to commend the actions of the pilot and flight crew in bringing the plane to a safe landing.”
The pilot reported engine troubles and circled the airport for about two hours to waste fuel.
A source tells THR that DiCaprio signed autographs for members of the crew and passengers after the plane landed safely back at JFK. PHOTOS: DiCaprio's most memorable roles.
