The British Airways flight carrying The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge back from their visit to the UNICEF Emergency Supply Center in Copenhagen, Denmark November 2nd, 2011 gave royalists quite a scare. The Daily Mail reports that the plane “narrowly avoided” collision with an aircraft on the runway that had not yet been cleared for take off at Heathrow. Passengeres were terrified as the pilot ascended quickly to avoid a deadly crash.
William and Catherine were “deeply unsettled” by the maneuver, though Clarence House will not comment on the story and its validity.
A source told The People, ”This really was a serious incident and would have been terrifying for those on board. The aircraft ahead of them hadn’t cleared the runway in time for the plane carrying the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to land. For anyone who didn’t know what was going on it would have been extremely worrying.”
I don’t even want to think about a world without Wills and Kate.
