Magician David Copperfield had a less-than-entertaining ride to New York today.

The popular illusionist, who lives in Las Vegas, was traveling to New York City for a Monday morning appearance on NBC's "Today Show." En route, a loud noise prompted the pilot to make an immediate emergency landing.

Although the plane touched down safely in Peoria, Ill., and no one was injured, the scary stopover was detailed by Copperfield on Twitter:
