Miley Cyrus’ sister Brandi has revealed their jet nearly crashed into another plane en route to Glastonbury.
Speaking on her podcast, which she hosts with former Bachelorette contestant Wells Adams, the singer’s old sister recalled their terrifying experience trying to land in the UK.
She said: “My mom and Miley are both very nervous fliers, and when they get nervous, they just feed off of each other and just make each other more nervous.”
“And then Miley’s other manager, Adam, is almost a worse nervous flier than my mom and Miley combined, which is insane to even think about.”
“So I’m sitting with the three of these people, and it’s bumpy and they’re kind of freaking out, and then out of nowhere, as we’re landing, we swoop back up and like bank to the left, and turn and like, it feels crazy.”
Brandi said Miley and their mom Tish started “losing their minds”, as the flight attendants were strapped into their own seats and couldn’t tell them what was going on.
“Miley’s in my lap, my mom’s holding my hand across the aisle, Adam’s freaking out, and we’re like, no one’s telling us what’s going on,” she recalled. “So we’re sitting here thinking like what in the world is going on.”
Finally, the flight crew told them that there was “no need to panic, but somebody was in our lane in the sky, and we were going to hit them, so we had to come back up and move.”
Brandi continued: “That’s terrifying to think about. Like, you’re going like what? 400 miles an hour? And a plane is like, in your lane, like that’s insane.”
To make matters even worse, the 32-year-old revealed the same thing happened a second time, because there was a plane in the way on the runway.
She said: “After 10 minutes of circling… they go back to land again – same frickin’ thing happens! They had to swoop back up and bank again…”
“My mom starts crying and goes ‘If we die, Noah (Miley’s sister) is alone’ and freaking out. I’m trying to hold it together for everybody.”
Brandi added: “If I didn’t have to be the strong person in the group, I would have been scared but my mom and Miley were really losing it so I was trying to keep it cool. It was pretty insane.”
