Morgan Freeman is "relieved" he was able to "walk away" from his plane scare in 2015.

The 79-year-old actor found himself in an unnerving situation in December 2015 when his private plane - which was being flown by pilot Jimmy Hobson - was forced to make an emergency landing in Mississippi, after it experienced severe technical difficulties just moments after taking off.

Now, the 'Shawshank Redemption' star admits the experience made him "anxious", but he's glad both himself and the pilot were able to walk away unharmed.
