Plane Carrying Post Malone Makes Successful Emergency Landing After Blowing Out Tires

The plane spent hours circling the tri-state area, burning fuel.

A private plane carrying Rapper Post Malone made a successful emergency landing after blowing out its tires. 

The Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4 luxury jet left Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Tuesday morning, according to The Associated Press.

The pilot noticed shortly afterward that the tires were damaged during takeoff and spent the next few hours circling above the tri-state area, burning fuel before making the emergency landing at New York's Stewart International Airport.

On social media, many offered prayers for Post and the others aboard. The rapper was one of 16 people on the plane.

Malone, 23, whose real name is Austin Post, posted a profane tweet that he was safe. "I landed guys. Thank you for your prayers. Can't believe how many people wished death on me on this website. F*** you. But not today."


Post performed Monday at the MTV Video Music Awards with Aerosmith.
