'Shaken' Elton John’s private jet forced to make emergency landing: 'Horrible to see!'

Sir Elton John, 74, was left “shaken” on Monday, after his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing when the aircraft suffered hydraulic failure at 10,000ft. The plane aborted landing twice and had to make a U-turn while approaching the coast of southern Ireland.

Witnesses described the sight as “horrible to see”.

According to The Sun, fire crews raced to Farnborough Airport in Hampshire, shortly after the £66million jet left for New York at 10.20am.

Plumber Philip Thomson, who was there when the plane landed, recalled: “The terrible weather and epic gusts made it almost impossible to land.

“Two attempts to touch down failed.

“It was only at the third attempt to land that the plane got down.

“The pilot made a flatter approach and the wind had dropped slightly.

“Everyone watching was mightily relieved.”
