Miranda Lambert’s Plane Makes Emergency Landing in West Virginia

A plane carrying Miranda Lambert was forced to make an emergency landing in Clarksburg, W.V. on Tuesday. The singer says her traveling group is fine — she even managed to make light of the situation.

“Don’t worry, we found platinum fire suits,” Lambert said with the above photo on Instagram. The ‘Automatic’ singer was traveling from Teterboro, N.J. after making several media appearances in New York City on Tuesday.

According to several sources, the plane landed at 4PM ET, was on the ground for two hours and took to the air again around 6PM ET. They landed at Smyrna Airport at 7PM CT. CBS reports the plane lost pressure, forcing the landing.

Lambert released her fifth studio album ‘Platinum’ on Tuesday. The project features ‘Automatic’ as well as her collaboration with Carrie Underwood on ‘Somethin’ Bad.’ She’ll play Nashville’s LP Field this weekend as part of the CMA Music Festival.
