Bullock Fine After Plane Crash
Actress Sandra Bullock says she prayed as her plane crash-landed in a blizzard at Jackson Hole Airport. Bullock, the star of the current Miss Congeniality (2000), was en route from her home in Austin, Texas, when the twin-engine jet slid into a snowbank last Wednesday, damaging the nose and a wing. During the harrowing moments, Bullock told Daily Variety: "We prayed that the plane wouldn't explode." Bullock, her friend Bob Schneider and the plane's two crew members were not seriously hurt. They climbed out and found the airport empty. The jet was so mangled it took three hours to move to a storage site. Authorities said blizzard conditions and a high cross wind made landing difficult at the airport in northwestern Wyoming. Despite the ordeal, Bullock said she's feeling fine: "Maybe just a little whiplash."
