Musicians Post Malone and Andrew Watt were both on board a Gulfstream airplane that successfully made an emergency landing after experiencing issues during takeoff,
The Gulfstream IV jet took off from New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport and was originally bound for the United Kingdom, but the plane was diverted to New York’s Stewart International Airport after it blew two tires upon takeoff, the Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday. The plane was diverted so it could burn off more fuel for a safer possible crash landing. The jet had 3,700 gallons of fuel to burn, according to sources.
The plane safely landed at 3:50 p.m. and then was towed to the ramp, the FAA said.
Malone posted on Twitter after the safe landing. “i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. F*ck you. but not today,” he wrote. Malone’s DJ, who goes by the name Smittytb on Instagram, posted video of the rapper and others standing on the airport runway after the jet safely landed.
Post won the MTV VMA Song of the Year award for his hit “Rockstar” Monday night and also performed with 21 Savage and Aerosmith. After the legendary band heard the news of Post’s plane adventure, they tweeted, “Happy to hear @PostMalone and crew made it safely on the ground! Keep rockin’ man!”
