Washington :Bono faced scare in the air when the back door of his private jet just fell off 15,000 feet to the ground recently.
According to the authorities, the mishap occurred over Germany while the 54-year-old U2 front man was travelling with four friends in the Learjet 60 from Dublin to Berlin for the 2014 BAMBI Awards, reportedly.
Luckily, the plane reached ground safely, and the pilots, who found out only once the plane had landed, said that though they felt a turbulence like rumble, they didn't experience any major disturbance while flying the plane, since the back of the plane was not connected to the pressurized cabin.
The aircraft had lost its door and two suitcases from the luggage compartment, and did not suffer any structural damage, however, a spokesman for the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation said that they didn't find the jet's rear door.
