As it was previously reported, Post Malone was onboard an airplane that had to make an emergency landing due to blown out tires. Now, a few publications have gotten access to newly released photos which show the severity of the situation, which has since been rectified.
When Post Malone was leaving the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards in New York for a concert in London, England, the tires blew out on the plane after they took off, which led the pilot to abandon the trip overseas for the sake of trying to make a safe landing.
For four hours the plane circled the tri-state area to burn fuel, and there were sixteen people in total on the plane. They ended up landing it safely.
Emergency first responders, including fire trucks and ambulances, were on the scene in case anything happened. Members of the Stewart Air National Guard Base Department shared photos of the plane’s tires.

One can see that the situation certainly was not a good one for the “Congratulations” singer. However, thankfully, he and the rest of his team were able to secure a safe landing.
When Post spoke with TMZ afterward, he thanked all of those who said their prayers. However, he said he couldn’t believe how many people wished for him to die.
“Can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website.” Malone had just the won the award for Song Of The Year at the MTV Video Music Awards, for his track with 21 Savage, “Rockstar.”
Post’s latest record, beerbongs and Bentleys, exceeded the expectations following his debut, Stoney, which had a few hit singles, including “Congratulations” and “White Iverson.”
Post Malone, or Austin Post, is lucky to be alive. It wouldn’t be the first time a musician has lost their lives in a crash. Aaliyah died in 2001 in a plane crash, as well as the founding members of Lynyrd Skynrd in 1977.
