They were on a flight, returning from Shanghai when they had to make an emergency landing in Irkutsk, Russia.
What's scariest is the fuel dump that happened before landing! Tom snapped a pic (above) and wrote:
"Just had to make an emergency landing in Irkutsk, Russia on the way back from Shanghai. Here's the pic of the fuel dump before landing."
Jeez, we can't even imagine what that'd be like! Thank goodness they had each other for support.
Dustin was tweeting about the incident as well, writing:
"Locked in the broken plane. No word on what's happening. #EmergencyLanding in Russia. #FireEngines abound…."
Thankfully they're safely on the ground and things didn't take a turn for the worst!
Things seem okay now, with Dustin tweeting:
"Happy to be alive. @VirginAtlantic have been very helpful. Now we just need to get out of Siberia. Bit scary."
Yeah, we can imagine that was a bit more than a "bit" scary!
Check out the video (below) to see their mid-air fuel dump take place so they can safely make their emergency landing!
