Safe and healthy. Miley Cyrus’ plane made an emergency landing after being struck by lightning on March 23, 2022 en route to the Asunciónico Festival in Asunciónico, Paraguay.
Miley announced the news in an Instagram post This Morning, which included video of a severe storm outside her plane window and the area of the plane where lightning struck. Cyrus, who was on the plane with her crew, band, friends and family, also confirmed that everyone on board was safe following the incident. “To my fans and anyone who is concerned after hearing about my flight to Asuncion. Our plane got caught in an unexpected storm and was struck by lightning. My crew, band, friends and family, who all traveled with me, are safe after an emergency landing. Unfortunately we could not fly to Paraguay. 💔 I LOVE YOU,” she wrote in the caption.
After Miley’s forced landing, the Asunciónico festival announced on its Twitter that it had canceled the event due to adverse weather conditions. In addition to Miley, the festival should also include artists such as Doja Cat, Machine Gun Kelly and Foo Fighters. After the cancellation, MGK played a set for fans in front of his hotel. Videos of the performance showed fans crowding the entrance of MGK’s hotel as a sound system was set up for him.
Miley isn’t the first star to be involved in a plane emergency. In September 2008, Travis Barker’s private plane crashed after a concert in South Carolina. Travis was on board the plane when the tires blew out on takeoff and the jet overran the runway and struck an embankment, causing a fire. Although Travis survived the crash, his security guard Charles “Che” Still, his assistant Chris Baker, pilot Sarah Lemmon, and co-pilot James Bland were killed in the accident. Barker’s friend Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein also survived the crash, but died a year later of a drug overdose, leaving the Blink 182 member as the sole survivor of the accident.
As he escaped from the plane, Travis was seen covered in kerosene and on fire. Goldstein helped put out the flames on Travis’ body, but the rocker had third-degree burns on 65 percent of his body. He spent three months in the hospital and underwent 26 surgeries and numerous skin grafts.
In an interview with Men’s Health in May, Travis revealed his desire to fly again after the fatal plane crash. “I have to,” he said. “I want to make the choice to try to overcome it.” Since the accident, the musician has been diagnosed with PTSD and has only traveled by car, train and boat, including transatlantic cruises to Europe. He told Men’s Health how he envisioned the day he would fly again.
“If I do and the angels above help and protect me in my travels, I would love to come back and [tell my kids], ‘Hey, I just flew here, and then I flew home. And everything was fine.’ I have to tell them because I almost left them,” he said. “This is a perfect day.”
Travis’ first flight since the crash was in August 2021, when he and fiancée Kourtney Kardashian boarded Kylie Jenner’s private jet from Los Angeles to Cabo, Mexico. Travis tweeted about his plans to get back on the air in June 2021. “Maybe I’ll fly again ✈️,” he wrote. Since he and Kourtney began dating in January 2021, the two have traveled by car to Las Vegas, Montecito, California, Canyon, Point Utah and Park City, Utah. A source told E! News in August 2021 that Kourtney has helped Travis overcome his fear of flying since they got together.
“Travis has been working on this for a while,” the insider said. “It’s something he wanted to do and overcome. Kourtney was incredibly loving and supportive and through her love, help and trust in him he was finally able to do so. The people who have been close to Travis since his fall are very happy for him.”
The insider continued, “His life has completely changed since he started dating Kourtney and he feels ready to do anything. She helped him overcome that fear and he feels that with her by his side he can achieve anything. He had wanted to fly for a while and felt the time was finally right.”
