The plane took off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Tuesday afternoon, headed to London. However, after two of the plane’s tires blew off during takeoff, the pilot contacted air traffic control to request an emergency landing, TMZ reports. Air traffic control officials decided the plane needed to burn more fuel before landing and directed it to fly to Massachusetts.
A total of 16 passengers were said to be aboard the plane.
