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.
This Gulfstream IV departed TEB several hours ago, blowing 2 tires in the process. It was originally bound for Luton Airport near London. It is reported to have #PostMalone onboard. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/rBbgMVu5tE— NYCAviation (@NYCAviation) August 21, 2018
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.
My heart goes out 2 @PostMalone/ his entourage as their tires blew on takeoff. I'm about 2 takeoff on my plane 2 Boise, sending thoughts/prayers to #PostMalone & his crew 4 a safe landing. They need 2 dump fuel & lighten the load. Pilots will try to reduce fuel risk on landing. pic.twitter.com/VgAdvvri0a— Bret Michaels (@bretmichaels) August 21, 2018
Post Malone eventually tweeted that he was OK, and called out those who “wished death on me.”
i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can't believe how many people wished death on me on this website. fuck you. but not today— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) August 21, 2018
