Post Malone’s plane is set to make an emergency landing after two of the tires reportedly blew out after takeoff.
TMZ reports that Malone and his team departed Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Tuesday (Aug. 21) headed to London. According to law enforcement, the plane’s tires blew off during takeoff and the pilot circled back around to perform an emergency landing.
In the air traffic audio, the pilot says they’ve lost a tire, and asks for permission to circle the runway. He also makes it known there are 16 people on the plane.
Air traffic control then informed the pilot to fly to Massachusetts in order to burn more fuel for a safer possible crash landing. The plane reportedly had 3,700 gallons of fuel to burn.
A video shows emergency personnel on the ground in Teterboro preparing for an emergency landing before it was decided they should land elsewhere.
UPDATE: Post Malone’s plane has safely landed at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, New York.
“i landed guys. thank you for your prayers,” tweeted Post. “can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. fuck you. but not today.”
