A plane carrying Post Malone and 15 other people, which has two blown tires, will attempt to make an emergency landing at Stewart Airport in Orange County, New York. The luxury Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4 aircraft took off from Teterboro airport in New Jersey just before 11 a.m. and has been circling since, trying to burn off fuel.
The flight was originally supposed to make an emergency landing in Teterboro but was then diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Springfield, Massachusetts, before being ultimately re-routed to Stewart Airport. The aircraft was originally scheduled to land in Luton, England. His next scheduled performance was at the Reading Festival in Reading, England, on Friday, August 24.
Emergency response crews were on the scene awaiting the plane’s landing.
