It has surely been a scary flight for famous singer Bono. It has been reported that a private plane carrying the lead singer of U2 experienced an incident while being in air. Apparently, a rear door fall off. Luckily, the plane was able to land safely and no one was injured.
The plane landed in the vicinity of Schoenefeld airport, on Berlin southeastern edge. Authorities claim that the U2 star has never been in real danger. Moreover, there was no loss of pressure, so the passengers of the plane did not had to put on oxygen masks. The door that broke was outside the pressurized area of the cabin.
Although authorities claimed that the star has never been in danger during the flight from Dublin, Ireland, to Belin, sources revealed that the plane could have gone down. The U2 star was accompanied during the trip by four friends. “About an hour into the journey they heard a big thud coming from the rear of the plane,” a source said.
“They were startled for a bit but they continued on and made the descent into Berlin airport. When they landed they were horrified to learn that the compartment at the rear of the plane had completely detached,” it added. The source also revealed that Bono and his friends actually feel very lucky to be alive, as anything could have happened in the air. The Daily Mail reported that Bono’s and one of his companion’s luggage fell out in the air.
For now, it remains a mystery why the door flew out. The door might have been broken, but it might have not been closed properly, too. It is yet to see if other details will be revealed soon on what has caused the incident.
Bono currently is in Berlin, attending the Bambi Awards. Despite the incident, the star remained committed to his schedule. He made no public statements regarding what happened in the plane. Bono was the only U2 member on this plane. Bandmates Larry Mullen, the Edge and Adam Clayton flew separately to the capital of Germany, where the band is set to perform.
