PALM SPRINGS, CA — 'Aquaman' star Jason Momoa's plane made an emergency landing in Palm Springs as the star was on his way to Phoenix on Thursday.

According to an Instagram post by palmsprings_firefighters, Momoa's private plane needed to make an emergency landing when an engine fire was reported on board.

"ARFF Engineer Andy Meza told his crew, 'Not on my watch boys...not on my watch,'" the Instagram caption reads.

The fire ended up being a false alarm, and Momoa's plane landed safely in Palm Springs.

The actor made his way to Sky Harbor Airport later in the day, and traveled to build a custom Harley Davidson at Phoenix's Love Cycles.

"So the world knows we are safe and happy. The plane failed," Momoa wrote on his own Instagram page. "...but the Harley runs perfect. Building my dream bike with @love_cycles."
