Jet Carrying Rapper Post Malone Lands Safely at NY Airport After Tires Blew Out
A jet carrying rapper Post Malone landed safely at a New York airport after two of its tires blew out upon takeoff.
The jet took off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey at around 10:50am ET and burned fuel in midair for about five hours before landing at New York Stewart International Airport shortly before 4 p.m.
Post Malone, whose given name is Austin Richard Post, attended the MTV Video Music Awards in New York City Monday night, for which his song "Rockstar" won Song of the Year.
The aircraft was set to travel to London as part of an international tour.
Shepard Smith said on Tuesday that the aircraft is operated by executive jet charter JetReady.
It had originally been diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts before once again being rerouted, this time to Stewart Airport.
