Post Malone's private jet is safely on the ground after a wild afternoon that ended with an emergency landing in Newburgh, New York.

Emergency crews greeted the private plane as it landed to a spattering of applause from the media that were camped out behind the runway's fence.

The ordeal began during takeoff in New Jersey when two of the private plane's tires blew out. The following five hours were spent burning off the plane's fuel in an effort to make the emergency landing safer and less prone to an explosion. Fun 107 followed the flight path, which took the plane on a zigzag tour all around upstate New York, circling around Poughkeepsie and southern Connecticut before finally coming to a stop in Stewart International Airport in Newburgh (located about 70 miles north of New York City).

None of the passengers or crew appeared to be hurt during the flight or emergency landing.

We can only imagine what the atmosphere must have been like during the ordeal. A source at Post Malone's record label told Fun 107 that the rapper "is scared to death to fly...I feel so bad for him."

Officials said the plane was diverted to Stewart Airport because of the length of its runway/landing strip, which is longer than average and more able to accommodate an emergency landing situation.

Previous to the emergency, Malone had been heading to London on the heels of his VMA's performance with Aerosmith.
