Plane carrying Post Malone successfully makes emergency landing
TETERBORO, N.J. — A plane carrying artist Post Malone and 15 other passengers made a safe emergency landing Tuesday.
Two of the private plane’s tires reportedly blew out after takeoff.
KSWB sister station WPIX said Post Malone, born Austin Richard Post, was one of the 16 passengers on the Gulfstream IV jet.
He won ‘Song of the Year’ at the MTV Video Music Awards Monday for his smash hit “Rockstar.”
Initial reports claimed the flight was being diverted from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts, FOX 61 reported.
Before the diversion, the pilot was trying to burn off fuel by circling above the New Jersey airport. More fuel will be burned off as the aircraft heads to Massachusetts, WPIX reported.
The aircraft made a safe landing at Stewart International Airport in upstate New York.
The plane was en route to London Luton Airport in Luton, England.
