Plane carrying Post Malone makes emergency landing With 2 Blown Tires

A private jet carrying rapper Post Malone makes an emergency landing at Stewart Airport in Newburgh after is suffered tire damage

After circling the skies for hours, a damaged plane carrying a rapper and his entourage landed safely in a New York airport more than 50 miles away from Teterboro Airport, where the plane took off.

At around 10:50 a.m. the Gulf Stream 4 jet took off from Teterboro Airport, headed to London Luton Airport in Luton, England, according to the FAA. Shortly after takeoff, the pilots noticed that the two left main tires blew out.

The face-tattooed singer/rapper, who had been headed to England, tweeted, “i landed guys.”

“Oh, my God, I hate flying in general. I don’t even know what to say, man. I’m shook,” he told the celebrity website TMZ on Facetime. “There was one hell of a team on that aircraft, and we’re here, we’re here on earth, and I need a beer, and I need some wine, at the same time, mixed together.”

The troubled Gulfstream IV was en route with 16 people aboard, including Malone, to London Luton Airport in Luton, England, when the pilot realized shortly after takeoff that the tires had blown. He began circling the airport for about 30 minutes before the jet was diverted.

The plane was diverted to another airport as it burns off fuel.

The jet was heading to New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, about 70 miles north of New York City, said Eric Billowitz, manager of Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts. The plane originally was to attempt an emergency landing at Westfield-Barnes airport.

Billowitz said he was told the plane was first headed to the Massachusetts airport because there is a Gulfstream service center there and because the airport has “one of the longest runways in the Northeast” at 9,000 feet, but the plane was then diverted to Stewart.

Stewart’s signature feature is a nearly 12,000-foot runway, long enough to handle the fat-bodied C-5A Galaxy planes laden with supplies and better for such emergencies.

The plane had 16 people on board when it left Teterboro Airport around 10:50 a.m. Tuesday, the Federal Aviation Administration said, but didn’t specify if the number of people aboard included the pilot.

Malone was born in Syracuse, N.Y., before moving to Texas. His debut single “White Iverson” in the mid-2010s earned him fast fame, and from his second album featured the song “Rockstar” with 21 Savage hitting no. 1 on the Billboard charts.

The rapper took to Twitter after landing to comment on how social media followed his emergency detour.

“I landed guys, thank you for your prayers,” wrote Malone. “Can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website… (expletive) but not today.”

After landing, Post Malone spoke to about the experience.

“Oh my God, (expletive), I hate flying in general,” he said. “I don’t even know what to say , an, I’m shaking.”

Malone praised the pilot for getting everyone on the ground safely.

“There’s one hell of a team on that aircraft,” he said. “We’re here, and we’re here on earth, and I need a beer and I need some wine at the same time mixed together.”

Malone was headed to the United Kingdom for a scheduled concert Friday, which was still on as of late Tuesday.
