TETERBORO, N.J. — A plane that blew two tires during takeoff at a small New Jersey airport then headed to an airport in Massachusetts has made a successful emergency landing in upstate New York.
The Gulfstream IV jet was carrying 16 passengers when it left Teterboro Airport around 10:50 a.m. Tuesday.
Musicians Post Malone and Andrew Watt were both on board, according to a source with knowledge of the flight. Post Malone was seen exiting the plane after it touched down at Stewart International Airport in Newburgh.
“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,” he wrote in a tweet.
The five-hour ordeal began shortly after takeoff, when the pilot realized what had happened and began circling Teterboro Airport for about 30 minutes trying to burn off fuel before the jet was diverted.
More fuel would be burned off as the aircraft headed to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts.
Flight tracking service flightradar24.com showed the flight circling over Stamford and Bridgeport in southern Connecticut on the Long Island Sound shortly after 1 p.m.
More than an hour later, the plane had been diverted again, this time to New York's Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, the FAA told CNN.
The jet was initially headed to London Luton Airport in Luton, England. It landed safely in New York shortly before 4 p.m.
