U2 frontman Bono has spoken out following an incident on Wednesday in which the rear hatch of his private jet fall off mid-flight to Berlin.
Talking to reporters on the red carpet for an awards ceremony in the German capital, Bono described the event as a “bit scary, really,” although he added that he and his four fellow passengers were fine.
“We were about 25 minutes from the airport, and there was a bang. And we thought we’d hit turbulence or maybe the landing gear was coming down,” he said, according to NBC News. “The real relief was that the particular design meant that the plane didn’t decompress.”
The singer also voiced concern for anything that might have been hit by the falling door or luggage.

“You know there may be a few cows or sheep in the German countryside with a very sore head. We trust that nobody was hurt because we would have heard by now, and that was actually our first concern,” he said.
