A law enforcement source reportedly said the pilot had to circle back around and perform an emergency landing, although the air traffic audio paints a slightly different story.
In the recording, the pilot says, “We just felt a tire blew, so we might need to come back there. We blew a tire, so we need to come back sir. We’re not going to declare an emergency sir, but we’d like to just head back. If it’s ok, could we hold just to burn some fuel to get our weight down? We have 16 souls on board.”
Post had made an appearance at the 2018 MTV VMAs in New York City on Monday night (August 20) where he performed “rockstar” with Aerosmith and 21 Savage ahead of picking up an award for Best Song.
