Miley Cyrus’ Plane Struck By Lightning, Forced To Make Emergency Landing
Miley Cyrus revealed in the wee hours of Wednesday that her private plane was forced to make an emergency landing after being struck by lightning on the way to Paraguay.
The terrifying video the singer posted to Instagram showed flashing lightning outside her airplane’s window. Her post also included an image of where the lightning struck the plane. In her caption, Cyrus said, “My crew, band, friends and family who were all traveling with me after an emergency landing. We were, unfortunately, unable to fly into Paraguay.”
Cyrus was set to perform at the Asunciónico music festival but had to cancel her appearance, which would have been Wednesday after the incident. Because of weather conditions in Paraguay, all of Tuesday’s shows for the festival were canceled, including headlining sets by The Foo Fighters, Doja Cat and Machine Gun Kelly.
Cyrus has been touring South America and had just done a show in Colombia before the failed flight to Paraguay. It looks like the final leg of her South American tour will be Saturday, March 26 at Lollapalooza Brasil in São Paolo.
