While Miley Cyrus was able to pull off a powerful performance for the Glastonbury music festival, it turns out the singer wasn’t so fierce during a terrifying flight incident. Her older sister Brandi Cyrus dished the details of their trip to the U.K. where the family, management team and band faced something out of a nightmare.
“Our plane tried to land twice and had to come back up because there were other planes in our way,” Brandi recounted the incident.
“Out of nowhere, as we’re landing, we swoop back up and like bang to the left and turn. It feels crazy,” she recalled, explaining that her mom and sister are “very nervous fliers, and when they get nervous they just feed off of each other, and just make each other more nervous.”
“They just start losing their minds. And even though I’m scared, I was like, ‘Someone has to be level headed here’… so, Miley’s in my lap, my mom’s holding my hand across the aisle… and nobody is telling us what’s going on.”
It wasn’t until after the five minutes of pure terror that they were told what had happened.
“They finally come back and tell us, ‘No need to panic but somebody was in our lane in the sky and we were going to hit them. That’s terrifying to think about.”
But the frightening experience doesn’t end there. Brandi says “The same frickin’ thing happens!” when the plane tried to descend again.
“My mom starts crying and goes, ‘If we die, Noah is gonna be alone’ and freaking out. I’m trying to hold it together for everybody,” she shared. “It was really crazy.”
