Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and wife Nancy in near helicopter crash

 

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY and his wife were just seconds from death when their helicopter came within two feet of crashing into trees.

The chopper carrying the 70-year-old former Beatle and Nancy, 52, was trying to land at night on a helipad at the couple’s estate in Peasmarsh, East Sussex.

According to the Air Accidents Investigation Branch, the 55-year-old pilot of the £5m nine-seater helicopter became “disorientated” in rain and “low cloudbase”.

He veered towards trees and almost hit them, but pulled away in time.

The pilot landed the Sikorsky S-76C – owned by Air Harrods – 15 miles away at Lydd, Kent.

Sir Paul and Nancy had been attending the launch of his daughter Mary’s veggies cookbook in London.
