Bono has seemed to somehow come into the line of danger lately.
While making a two-hour trip from Dublin to Berlin on board a Learjet 60 D-CGEO, just last week, his private jet lost its rear hatch before it landed in Berlin from Dublin.
Moreover, the door came off and two suitcases flew out of the plane as well.
“He was extremely lucky, the plane could have gone down” a source is quoted in the Irish Daily Mail as saying.
“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.” Thankfully no one was hurt.
Bono has reportedly been injured in New York’s Central Park bike accident on Sunday and will require arm surgery forcing U2 to cancel its week-long residency on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which was scheduled to begin on Monday.
Other members of the band posted on U2’s website, “It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down.” The band explained, “Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it.
We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back!” U2’s The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullens, Jr.
added, “Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.” Bono, however, is yet to comment on the cycling accident.
The “Tonight’s Show”, which had been heavily promoting U2’s residency has not yet commented on the last-minute cancellation.
