Post Malone Safe After Dramatic Plane LandingA Gulfstream IV that was carrying the rapper and 15 other people from Teterboro, N.J., to London on Tuesday blew out two tires, but eventually landed safely in Orange County, N.Y.
Emergency personnel, including firefighters and police, were gathered at the airport near Newburgh, N.Y., but the plane landed safely at about 3:50 p.m., despite the damage. Stewart Airport services both civilian and military aircraft.
Post Malone (born Austin Richard Post) performed Monday night in New York at the MTV Video Music Awards alongside Aerosmith and 21 Savage; his song "rockstar," featuring 21 Savage, won the song of the year prize at the VMAs.
TMZ posted audio of a conversation that it says took place between the plane's pilot and air traffic control just after takeoff.
On the audio recording, the pilot advises a traffic controller that a tire has blown, and requests permission to head back to Teterboro, noting that there are 16 people on board the jet.
