Savage death fear as plane hit by big bird
FOOTBALL pundit Robbie Savage says he nearly DIED in a harrowing plane crash.
The former Wales international and BBC1 presenter says he almost carked it on a recent trip to Africa.
The 38-year-old said: “I have a fear of flying, so when I was away in Kenya last week my heart sank when the airport was a shack next to a muddy runway and the aircraft was like a lawnmower with wings!
“As we were lifting off, I had the fright of my life when there was a huge bang and the plane shuddered.
“Luckily, the pilot kept in control and we continued on our way.
“Once I’d changed my trousers I was told a big bird called a Glossy Ibis had smashed into the undercarriage.
“We survived, but there was nothing left of beaky!” HOW about this for an unbelievable story – the French are actually starting to LIKE British food!
Now it’s always got on my nerves just how snobby our ‘friends’ across the Channel can be when it comes to bragging about their superior cuisine and knocking us Brits for loving pies and fish ’n chips. Mind you, I must admit I have to be careful about what I eat to make sure I stay in decent nick – and I hope you’ll agree I’m looking pretty tasty because of it!
I’ve told my boyfriend it’s time he treated me to some food heaven – but I must admit I dropped the hint that I’d prefer the setting to be the Eiffel Tower rather than our great British favourite at Blackpool!
