Wiz Khalifa was on a plane that had to make an emergency landing in Westchester, New York yesterday afternoon (Nov. 27), after the pilot noticed problems with the landing gear.

Newsday reports that the flight originally left from La Guardia and made the unscheduled landing at the Westchester airport as a precaution.

The “Black and Yellow” rapper and his crew were among the 50 passengers onboard the U.S. Express Airways flight that was headed to Pittsburgh.

Anthony Tamborino, a member of Khalifa’s “Taylor Gang” who goes by the name Berner onstage, said the experience was unsettling.

“We had superstars on the plane and we didn’t know what was going on, for real,” Tamborino told News 12. After the plane crew told the passengers they would be circling Westchester County Airport to burn fuel Tamborino admits that it was unsettling.

“[It] was a little scary because we didn’t quite know what that meant,” he said. After landing safely in Westchester, Khalifa and his crew chartered a private jet to take them back to Pittsburgh, the rapper’s hometown. He is performing a show tonight in Morgantown, VA at the WVU Coliseum.

Khalifa, born Cameron Thomaz, is touring to support his new album O.N.I.F.C which is due out on Dec. 4. Earlier this year he announced his engagement to model Amber Rose and the pair announced at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards that they are expecting their first child.
