Bono Cheats Death, Avoids Plane Crash


Bono was traveling from Dublin to Berlin on board a Learjet 60 D-CGEO to attend the Bambi International Music awards when the plane’s door was completely torn away from the aircraft. 

He was on board with four friends, but his bandmates weren’t travelling along.  Bono was flying ahead of them because he was supposed to attend a diplomatic meeting with Gerd Mueller, the German minister of economic cooperation and development.

A well-informed source described everything that had happened to the Irish Daily Mail, stressing how unbelievably lucky Bono was to avoid a complete disaster.

“He was extremely lucky, the plane could have gone down. About an hour into the journey they heard a big thud coming from the rear of the plane. 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.

The entire door along with Bono and his companions’ luggage had fallen out mid-air. They don’t know if the door and the contents landed over water or land but they were extremely lucky. They were at an altitude where anything could have happened and they are all feeling very lucky to be alive.”

Authorities at the airport in Berlin confirmed that the plane had landed with a damaged tailgate.
