Friends stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have been caught in high-altitude drama after their plane was forced to make an emergency landing on Saturday (NZ time).

The pair were on a Gulfstream Aerospace IV private jet heading to Mexico from Los Angeles when the plane lost a wheel or tire during takeoff, TMZ reports.

According to TMZ, the flight was a surprise trip for Aniston's 50th birthday. Other passengers on board are said to be Jason Batemen's wife Amanda Anka and Molly Kimmel, wife of Jimmy Kimmel.

The flight was diverted to Ontario International Airport, east of Los Angeles, where it was forced to circle for several hours to burn off fuel before it could land safely.

Ontario airport officials say emergency services attended the landing in order to assist the aircraft. No one has been hurt in the incident.
