Plane Carrying Post Malone Makes Safe Emergency Landing

UPDATED: A plane carrying rapper Post Malone made a safe emergency landing in New York after blowing two tires and circling in the sky for several hours.

Jim Peters, a spokesperson with the Federal Aviation Administration, confirmed to Variety that the aircraft landed safely at the Stewart International Airport at about 3:50 p.m. The plane, a Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4 aircraft, blew two tires as it took off from the runway at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey at about 10:50 a.m. on Tuesday. The aircraft was carrying 16 passengers, and was originally heading to the London Luton Airport in Luton, England.

After it was made known that the tires had blown on the runway, the pilot rerouted the jet for the Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Westfield, Mass. However, Peters later updated Variety that it was being re-diverted to New York.

Malone, who had performed at the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday night, was aboard the private plane. The rapper tweeted about the landing on Tuesday afternoon, writing, “i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. f— you. but not today.”

According to TMZ, the reroute was a means of burning fuel on the aircraft in order to make a safer emergency landing. The plane reportedly had about 3,700 gallons of fuel to burn.

Malone closed out the VMAs on Monday night with a performance with 21 Savage of “Rockstar,” which also won song of the year, before introducing Aerosmith. Variety has reached out to Malone’s team and representatives with the Tereboro Airport for more information.
