Lil Wayne Reschedules His Show In Minnesota Again After Mechanical Problems With His Private Plane

Lil

2 months ago, Lil Wayne rescheduled his show at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota from February 25th to to March 31st for “scheduling conflicts”.

However, Weezy has had to reschedule the concert again as the private plane he rented out to fly to Minneapolis on had mechanical issues with the hydraulics.

Mr. Carter shared a letter from the operator of the aircraft on his Instagram page explaining the problem:

“Today, upon starting engines and doing operational checks before our departure to MSP we noticed that our flight hydraulics system started to quickly diminish. It quickly showed empty so we shut down the aircraft and did a visual walk around. Upon doing so we noticed hydraulic fluid leaking under the aft belly of the aircraft suggesting a hydraulic line had broken.”

Tunechi caption the social media post by saying: “Minnesota I’m sorry I kouldn’t make it tonight. Had plane issues that was out of my kontrol. Will make it up to y’all and reskhedule”!

Lil Wayne Got Off His Private Plane To Pay Respect To Around 30 U.S. Military Men

Lil Wayne Got Off His Private Plane To Pay Respect To 30 US Military Men

After performing live in Bloomington, Indiana on March 3rd, Lil Wayne headed to the IND airport so that he could leave the city and head to the next one on his “The Dedication Tour“.

Just as Tunechi‘s private plane was set to take off, a Lockheed C-130 Hercules military aircraft pulled up next to him. Tune then told his pilot to shut down their engine, so that he can go and meet all of the men in uniform (there was around 30) and shake their hands, as well as thank them personally for their sacrifice.

Amanda Lickliter was one of the people at the airport who witnessed all of this and she shared a post on her Facebook page with a photo saying how impressed she was with Wayne‘s act of kindness. You can check out that photo and message after the jump below!
