Post Malone's Plane Prepares to Make Emergency Landing After Tires Blow Out During Takeoff: Reports
While en route to London from New Jersey's Teterboro Airport, a source told TMZ that after the tires blew out, the plane circled back around to execute an emergency landing. The plane was been circling over Connecticut, as AP reports, and has since been re-diverted to New York's Stewart Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration confirms to a local Boston station.
TMZ accessed air traffic audio and the pilot reportedly said that a plane tire blew out and was seeking permission to circle around. He also noted that 16 people were on the flight. Another source explained to TMZ that the pilot was told to land in Massachusets in order to burn more fuel for a safer landing. The plane had reportedly 3700 gallons to burn.
On Monday (August 20), Malone clinched the award for song of the year for "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage.
Billboard has reached out to Malone's reps for comment.
