The Puppy Love star shared the worrying news with fans on on Tuesday (12Jan16), revealing he owes everything to the pilot, who made an emergency landing in California.

"Shortly after takeoff the plane's right engine generator stopped working," he captioned a brief video of himself posing beside the aircraft before the flight. "We made a quick landing in Sacramento and it's a good thing we did. The wiring in the generator was all charred and the mechanic told us it could've caused a mid-air fire."

Despite the travel problems, an upbeat Donny, 58, managed to find a positive outcome from the plane delay after heading to a local In-N-Out Burger joint.

He continued, "We've been grounded in Sacramento since Sunday evening, but here's the good news in all of this - I've enjoyed a delicious @innout burger (animal style of course)."
