A private plane carrying hip-hop megastar Posy Malone was forced to make an emergency landing, en route to Luton airport. TMZ reports that Malone’s aircraft blew two of its tires on the runway, as he took from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey.
Knowing that they’d have to make the landing, the pilot of the plane circled around the New York area for a few hours, to burn fuel. They were then forced to land at New York Stewart International Airport, with fire and ambulance crews called, before the plane safely made it’s landing at around 9pm UK time last night.
Malone has taken to Twitter to give thanks to his fans for their support during a doubtlessly stressful affair, as well as to criticise his detractors who wished the worst on him during the incident.
i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. fuck you. but not today

Malone performed alongside Aerosmith at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Monday, where he also took home the prize for Song of the Year, for his track Rockstar, which also featured 21 Savage. Malone was flying to the UK as he is scheduled to play Reading and Leeds Festival this weekend, which is being headlined by Kings of Leon, Fall out Boy, and Kendrick Lamar this year.
