A routine flight from New York City to Nashville took a scary turn for Miranda Lambert and members of her team Tuesday night, reports The Tennessean. The corporate jet took off from New York’s Teterboro Airport headed for Music City, but made an emergency landing in Clarksville, W. Va. after it lost pressure in-air.
The plane was diverted to North Central West Virginia Airport where, according to Miranda’s publicist, Wes Vause, it remained on the ground for about three hours before the flight resumed. While there, Miranda and her team spent time with firefighters and tried on their “platinum” HAZMAT suits, an appropriate twist to the events of the day, as Miranda had been in New York to promote her new album, Platinum.
“Our plane had an emergency landing in Clarksburg WV. But don’t worry, we found platinum fire suits. Yes!#platinum,” Miranda tweeted, sharing a photo of her and her team dressed up in HAZMAT suits. The plane landed safely at the Smyrna airport around 7p CT Tuesday.
Miranda released her Platinum album on June 3.
