A plane is stuck in mid air over New Jersey, attempting to land after blowing two of its tires off during takeoff.

Plane blows tires at New Jersey airport, prepares for crash landing

Well, this seems like quite the predicament. A plane blew two tires upon taking off, and now it's stuck in the air. How do you land a plane with blown tires? I can't imagine any way to do this safely without risking a fiery catastrophe. Hopefully those are some good pilots.

It’s only a small commuter plane, not a huge airliner. It will land with minimal damage.

According to TMZ, it is the rapper Post Malone on the plane, along with 16 others. They are circling to burn fuel and plan to land in Mass.


n air traffic audio -- obtained by TMZ -- the pilot makes it clear, they've lost a tire, and ask for permission to circle above ... he also makes it known there are 16 people on the plane. Our source says air traffic control then informed the pilot to continue flight to Massachusetts in order to burn more fuel for a safer possible crash landing. We're told the plane had 3,700 gallons of fuel to burn.

That has got to be a long plane ride knowing you are going to have to emergency land when you get there...

Same way you blow tires on the road- sharp crap on the runway.

Airport has some explaining to do. They should be cleaning the airstrip.

Belly landing.

Glad I'm not a passenger or pilot of it.

Emergency brakes, debris on the runway, many reasons.
Teterboro has a history of incidents.

This Cessna Jet tried taking off from Pittsburgh international airport with the emergency brakes on....


Those brakes were smoking.

Yeah, I pass by that airport everyday when I go to work and back home. I remember this one few year ago. No way I can forget it. The building is right next to the airport, in Rt. 46.

You run over something on the runway, or you miss the spot with chord showing because it rolled to the bottom of the toe when you parked.

They won't get anywhere. They'll burn fuel off and come back in. They probably won't even retract the gear.

Or they let the tires wear too much and didn't catch it.

God I love the media. Planes land just fine with blown tires all the time.

Looks like they moved up to Stewart in New York.

We hit a deer once coming in with the companies twin turbo. Aborted landing and flew to Saginaw because they had an emergency crew. Flew around burning fuel for a while then came in to land and passed the trucks on our way down the runway. No issue but a dozen nervous people. They just looked out of the tower with huge binoculars to see if everything looked good. People wonder why I hate traveling for work.

Lots of beers that night and 50 miles from our cars. Was a long night

Post Malone? That was the name of my old mailman.

Someone said they're going to be at least another couple hours with the fuel they have on board.

Looks like they didn't need to burn off as much as we thought. Textbook landing and they taxied off the runway under their own power.

Holy cow! Like I said, busy airport in a crowded area.... history of incidents.



IncidentsEdit

In 1956 and again in 1958, Thomas Fitzpatrick flew stolen aircraft from Teterboro and landed them along city streets in the Hudson Heights, Manhattan neighborhood.

In June 1966, in Hasbrouck Heights, a two-engine, Piper Aztec going to Teterboro Airport crashed, striking a tree and narrowly missing homes on Burton Avenue near Route 46. The pilot sustained injuries including a skull fracture – was taken to Hackensack Hospital by ambulance. He was carrying film for Eastman Kodak, Fair Lawn, NJ.

On September 23, 1981, a Ronson Aviation Bell 206B helicopter and a Seminole Air Charier Piper PA-34 airplane collided in flight over East Rutherford, about 2 nautical miles south of the Teterboro Airport. The airplane had a flight plan to Teterboro from Syracuse, New York. The helicopter was inbound to Teterboro from Woodbridge, NJ. The two aircraft collided at about 650 feet. The helicopter fell into the Meadowlands Sports Complex parking lot, and both persons aboard were killed. The airplane, with about 8 feet of its left wing and its right engine missing, made a gear-up landing in a marsh about seven-tenths of a mile east of the collision point. The pilot was seriously injured, and the passenger received minor injuries.[12]

On December 9, 1999, a small plane crashed between two houses in neighboring Hasbrouck Heights, killing all four people aboard, injuring three people on the ground and setting a garage on fire.[13]

On March 9, 2002, a single engine Cessna 210 with a flight plan to Montauk, NY, crashed shortly after take-off about 2 p.m. killing the only occupant and pilot. Upon impact the plane skidded about 225 feet before it burst into flames narrowly missing cars traveling on Route 46 about 100 yards away.[14]

On September 9, 2002, a Piper Saratoga 

list goes on...... busy airport.

I predict loud scraping noises.. but they'll walk away.
