Plane with Kutcher, Moore forced to land

A private plane with actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore aboard was forced to return to the Las Vegas airport shortly after takeoff, airport officials said.

The twin-engine Hawker Beechcraft plane returned to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas for an emergency landing after a warning light indicated engines were overperforming, signaling a possible problem, an airport spokesman told CNN.

On the online social Web site Twitter, Kutcher tweeted, my plane just had to do an emergency landing. Engine over heated. fire trucks everywhere. good times.

His wife, Moore, posted a picture on her Twitter page and messaged, Yep it is always an adventure in Vegas emergency landing and all!

The emergency landing was uneventful and no one was injured, the airport spokesman said. Besides Kutcher and Moore, the plane carried six passengers and crew.
