Travolta Plane Emergency -- Pulp Fiction?

4/5/2007 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John TravoltaRemember that supposed emergency plane landing that left John Travolta "shaken" last week in Ireland? Turns out it wasn't really a case of "Stayin' Alive."

The actor just released a statement to TMZ which dismissed the incident. "Thank you for your concern," says Travolta. "There was never an emergency. It was just a fuel stop and when we went to depart, the #2 engine needed a new starter." Reports from England had suggested that one of the engines malfunctioned mid-flight, and that the emergency landing was a close call.

Travolta -- and his Boeing 707 jet -- are both fine, in case you were wondering.
