The Gulfstream IV plane was diverted from its original destination in England to New York Stewart International Airport for the emergency landing after initially heading to the Westfield-Barnes airport in Massachusetts. The regional airport manager at Westfield-Barnes told the Associated Press that Stewart has a longer runway, which can better accommodate such emergencies.
The aircraft was carrying 16 passengers when it left Teterboro Airport around 10:50 a.m., AP reported. It landed shortly before 4 p.m. ET and was able to taxi off the runway before stopping behind a building.
The FAA said on Twitter that it planned to investigate the incident.
