Here we are gushing about how amazing Miranda Lambert looked at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards and girlfriend’s facing a scary emergency! CBS reports the country superstar was bound for Nashville from New York City when her private jet had to make an emergency landing in Clarksburg, West Virginia.
The in-flight incident occurred yesterday (June 3) with Miranda grounded for three hours after the plane lost pressure while up in the air, Miranda’s publicist, Wes Vause, tells CBS.
Rather than be put out by the crinkle in her plans on a very important day (her new album dropped yesterday), Miranda instead made some new friends! She chatted up local firefighters and even tried on their suits, documenting the whole thing on her Instagram.
“Our plane had an emergency landing in Clarksburg WV. But don’t worry, we found platinum fire suits. Yes! #platinum,” she captioned a photo of her along three very happy-looking firefighters. Platinum, of course, has a very special meaning to Miranda being the name of her latest album.
Eventually, things sorted out and Miranda was back up in the clouds, headed for Nashville. Stay safe out there! We can’t imagine Blake makes for a pretty crier.
