A private jet carrying superstar muso Post Malone and fifteen other passengers was forced to make an emergency landing at a New York airport after two tyres blew during takeoff.
The flight, which departed New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport and was originally bound for London’s Luton Airport, took off around 10:50am local time. The pilot reported the damage to ground control shortly after.
The Gulfstream IV circled above Connecticut for over an hour before it was diverted to New York’s Stewart International Airport, where it made a successful, safe landing.
N101CV, a Gulfstream G-IV with #PostMalone reportedly on board, that suffered 2 blown tires on departure from Teterboro has safely landed at Stewart Airport and vacated the runway.

Police units, ambulances, and airport emergency vehicles left the scene afterwards.
Old mate had this to say about the ordeal:

The emergency comes a day after the singer and rapper collected Song of the Year VMA for Rockstar.
