The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Richard Rawlings, the man behind Gas Monkey Garage, Gas Monkey Bar N Grill, and the Discovery TV series Fast N’ Loud, was on a plane Friday that had to make an emergency stop in Naples, Florida after losing cabin pressure.
The aircraft, a twin-enginer Hawker 800, was en route from Key West, FL (where Rawlings has recently opened a Gas Monkey Bar N Grill) to his home base of Dallas when it was forced to land in southwestern Florida.
After landing, Rawlings posted this on Instagram along with a photo: “After losing cabin pressure and almost passing out, we are so happy to be on solid ground.”
He also tweeted Mark Cuban, asking “My jet went down. Emergency landing in Naples, FL. Have a spare jet we can borrow?”
Cuban responded, “damn. You ok?”
Later, around 10 p.m., Rawlings posted that he had a new flight back to North Texas.
