TUNICA, Miss. (AP) — A statement from a Mississippi airport says there was minimal damage to actor Morgan Freeman's plane in a forced landing yesterday. A spokesman for Tunica Airport says he can't give specifics because federal authorities are investigating the Saturday incident. In a statement released by his publicist yesterday, Freeman said neither he nor his pilot was hurt but added, "I cannot say the same about my plane." A friend of the actor told The Associated Press that the plane blew a tire on takeoff and made an emergency landing.
