A small jet, reportedly carrying rapper Post Malone, has been circling the greater New York City-area for nearly four hours after blowing out two tires during takeoff on Tuesday while planning to make an emergency landing, sparking a massive response by first responders.
The Federal Aviation Administration told Fox News the aircraft, a Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4, blew two tires as it took off from runway 24 at Teterboro.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the airport, told Fox News the aircraft was then supposed to be diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts.
The FAA later told Fox News the plane has been diverted to Stewart Airport, located north of New York City.
It's not clear at what time the jet will attempt to make an emergency landing at the airport, located 70 miles north of Manhattan.
According to @ABC7NY, a Gulfstream G-IV suffered two blown tires on departure from Teterboro. Currently lowering fuel weight before returning to airport. https://t.co/s3EkUdkSaq— Flightradar24 (@flightradar24) August 21, 2018
