DiCaprio, 36, “avoided disaster at 30,000 feet,” UsMagazine.com reported.

The plane, bound for Moscow, had to return to John F. Kennedy airport shortly after take-off on Sunday when an engine suddenly shut down.

UsMagazine.com quoted a representative saying that the actor “wishes to commend the actions of the pilot and flight crew in bringing the plane to a safe landing.”

DiCaprio, who was on his way to Russia to attend a meeting on tiger preservation efforts, even “signed autographs for all the crew members when they landed,” the celebrity news magazine said.
