“A Plane Was in Our Lane:” Miley Cyrus’ Sister Shares Terrifying Landing Experience

“A Plane Was in Our Lane:” Miley Cyrus’ Sister Shares Terrifying Landing Experience
Jennifer Billock

It’s hard to realize sometimes that celebrities are real people just like us and can have serious fears—like a fear of flying. Miley Cyrus and her family and band recently went through a tough landing that kicked her anxiety into gear over the flight; her sister documented the experience on her podcast.

Last month, Miley Cyrus performed at the Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom. But, getting there wasn’t particularly easy. Cyrus was on the plane with her mother, Tish; her sister, Brandi; her band; and her entire management team when something appeared to go awry with the landing—twice.

Brandi, who hosts a podcast with The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise alum Wells Adams, explained the situation on the air:

“I’m on the plane with my mom, my sister and my sister’s whole management team and her band and we’re descending and the wheels are out and it’s a little bumpy,” she said in the podcast, reported by USA Today. “Out of nowhere, as we’re landing, we swoop back up and like bank to the left and turn. It feels crazy. Our plane tried to land twice and had to come back up because there were other planes in our way. A full five minutes go by, and we’re clearly going all the way back up and 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 if you’re going 400 miles an hour and a plane is in our lane.”

After 10 minutes or so, it happened again.

“My mom starts crying and goes, ‘If we die, Noah (younger sister) is alone’ and freaking out,” Brandi said. “I’m trying to hold it together for everybody.”

The plane eventually landed safely and the group went on to enjoy the festival without incident.

    So basically, the title of this should read, “one time a go-around happened with someone named Brandi on board…”

    Go Arounds are very common, happen all the time and no one was ever in any danger.

    I had a go-around last year for the same reason. Can I get on the homepage too?

    They aren’t going 400 MPH just before landing
