Thousands watched as Post Malone’s jet braced for emergency landing

BTW

On Tuesday morning, MTV Video Music Award winner Post Malone boarded a private plane from New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport to London, but it was forced to make an emergency landing after two tires blew out upon takeoff. The saga captivated the internet.

TMZ obtained audio from the flight, in which the pilot confirms the blowout, and that there are 16 people on board. The pilot reportedly circled above Massachusetts and Connecticut in an attempt to burn fuel before landing. A little before 3pm CT, the plane landed safely at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, New York.

At one point, more than 30,000 people watched a livestream as the “Rockstar” singer’s plane circled.

Post Malone also got a bizarre shoutout from Bret Michaels, who is apparently an expert on private jets.

Post Malone eventually tweeted that he was OK, and called out those who “wished death on me.”
