Rapper Post Malone Is Stuck On A Jet After Two Tires Blow During Takeoff
Having won a VMA for Song of The Year just last night, Post Malone is currently stuck on a jet in the air, unable to land after two tires blew during the plane's takeoff
After winning the MTV VMA for Song of the Year with song “Rockstar” and playing on stage with Aerosmith, the rapper took off earlier today out of Teterboro Airport and is now stuck in the air due to two of the plane’s tires blowing during takeoff. The plane has been circling the skies for over four hours now, trying to find the best way possible to make an emergency landing.
The jet is carrying 16 people and took off right outside of New York City just before 11 a.m. when the pilot reported that they were experiencing trouble. The Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4 blew two tires as it took off runway 24 at Teterboro, headed to London Luton Airport in Luton, England.
The pilot was originally planned to make a landing back at the airport in New Jersey but was supposed to be diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts. The FAA has now confirmed that the plane has been diverted to Stewart Airport, which is north of New York City. It’s not clear what time the jet is planned to make an emergency landing at this time.
People have already taken to Twitter showing support and hope for Malone and crew's safe return.
Ugh my dad works at the airport in Westfield and said they’ve been trying to get Post Malone’s plane down for an hour for an emergency landing because two tires blew and one of the two engines failed. Wtf— Herman Winkles (@HermanWinkles) August 21, 2018
This plane was going to London. Post Malone might be in the air for like six more hours. We’re in this for the long haul.— Eric Hubbs (@BarstoolHubbs) August 21, 2018
