Miranda Lambert Plane Makes Emergency Landing
June 04, 2014
A plane carrying country star Miranda Lambert en route from New York to Nashville was diverted Tuesday night and made an emergency landing in West Virginia.
The plane lost pressure and spent about three hours on the ground at North Central West Virginia Airport in Clarksburg WV before resuming its flight, Lambert's publicist Wes Vause told The Tennessean newspaper.
Despite the scare in the air, Lambert, 30, and other passengers apparently took the diversion in stride and even had some fun while on the ground. "Our plane had an emergency landing in Clarksburg WV. But don't worry, we found platinum fire suits. Yes!" she posted on Instagram, along with a photo of the group dressed up in the shiny suits.
Lambert made several appearances in New York City to promote her new album, Platinum, and she's due to perform at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville on Wednesday night.
