A private jet that blew two tires during takeoff at a small New Jersey airport has landed safely at an airport in New York.
  
The Gulfstream IV landed Tuesday at New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, about 70 miles (112 kilometers) north of New York City. Emergency responders were ready by the runway.
  
The jet was headed to London Luton Airport in Luton, England, from Teterboro Airport when the pilot realized after takeoff early Tuesday that the tires had blown. He circled the airport for about 30 minutes before the jet was diverted.
