Hulk Hogan in private jet terror as ‘brakes melt’ and ‘tyres blow out’

Hulk Hogan was caught up in a terrifying runway incident when his private jet suffered a malfunction while landing in Iceland.

The wrestling legend and his team were making a stop in the country en route to Saudi Arabia for an event.

After touching down, Hogan, 66, told fans the jet had a “really hard landing” which led to the brakes “melting”.

In a Facebook Live video, he said: “Alright guys, we are here in Iceland, and there’s our plane.

“We just had a really hard landing, blew out the tyres and brakes have melted. And that thing’s not going anywhere.”

However, Hogan and fellow wrestler Jimmy Hart, who was travelling with him, were not stuck for long.

They were offered a ride on a friend’s private jet so they could continue their journey to the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Crown Jewel event in Riyadh.

He added: “So, over there is a buddy of ours, and he’s got the same type of plane we we’re on.

“And he’s going to be graceful enough to let us climb on board and continue the journey… We’re going to make it…

“[It was] quite an experience landing in and all that crazy stuff happening…”

Hogan described the unnamed friend as a pal “from Minnesota” and reports suggest the good Samaritan is fellow WWE star Ric Flair.
