Bullock: Just Plane Luck

06/16/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

"Miss Congeniality" star Sandra Bullock, 36, escaped injury following a plane ride early yesterday morning on which she and three others skidded off an icy runway in a private aircraft in Jackson Hole, Wyo., her publicist, Pat Kingsley, announced. No one was injured or needed medical attention, said Kingsley, though the plane, which ended up in the snow, reportedly sustained extensive damage to both wings. The main nose landing gear was also sheared off, airport manager George Larson told the Associated Press. The incident reportedly occurred at 1:30 in the morning. Afterwards, Bullock, who was flying to the resort town from her home in Austin, Texas, told Variety columnist Army Archerd that her only setback was "maybe just a little whiplash." He described her in good spirits, despite the harrowing touchdown, when, she said, "We prayed that the plane wouldn't explode."
