The Gulfstream IV jet touched down at New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh just before 4 p.m. after originally being diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts, authorities told the Associated Press.
After flying for several hours, which Fox 5 New York reported was in an effort to burn off fuel, it landed to a crowd of cheers.
The musician, who performed at Monday night’s MTV Video Music Awards and took home an award for song of the year, confirmed his wild ride on Twitter shortly after and thanked those for their prayers.
The flight was originally headed to Luton, England. Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, is scheduled to perform at the Reading Festival in Reading, England, on Friday, according to his website.
