- The Queen Consort was back from India aboard a Boeing 777
- His plane was the victim of a collision in mid-flight
- Camilla Parker Bowles is very scared in the plane and this collision has accentuated this fear
experienced a tragic flight between India and London on October 28, 2022, during which his Boeing 777 suffered a collision while he was at high altitude. A fright for the Queen Consort who publicly acknowledged her fear of planes.
Huge damage to the nose of the aircraft
The aircraft on board which had taken placesuffered severe damage, and the nose of the aircraft was completely dented in the collision. It was shortly before landing that the incident took place, when the plane was bringing the Queen Consort back from India, from a health retreat while King Charles III continued his official travels. According to the Daily Mail, there would be a massive bump in the aircraft’s nose cone where the weather radar is located.
It seems that the plane collided with a bird, a little before 1 p.m., still according to the British daily, on approach for landing. If the queen consort has publicly admitted to being afraid of the plane, this has never prevented her from traveling the world on an official trip alongside her husband. British media reports that she once sat on the steps of a tiny private jet while visiting abroad refusing to board, terrified. Once on board, she regularly shakes hands with King Charles, himself a pilot, as a plane takes off, which some witnesses have already heard screaming in the event of turbulence “Honey, please don’t hold me so tight!”
Back from a break at a holistic health center in Bangalore
The queen consort took a break from a holistic health retreat in Bangalore, which she knows well, having been there at least seven times since 2010.. It advertises itself as a 30-acre organic farm, which offers yoga and ayuverdic, homeopathic and naturopathic treatments according to the Daily Mail. It is in this place thatspent her 71st birthday joined by King Charles III in 2019. The retreat offers many activities such as bird watching, a medicinal garden, cooking demonstrations, musical programs, garden tours, lectures by doctors and Trataka – a yogic cleansing and tantric meditation method. It also has a chapel, a badminton court, indoor games including a pool table, a library and a swimming pool.
Before returning to London, the Queen Consort had therefore spent 10 days of peace and calm in this haven of peace, which the collision on the way back could well have spoiled.. A British Airways spokesperson said that “the plane landed safely and customers disembarked normally”, although the aircraft will soon be subject to an inspection, before the company resumes normal service. According to the UK Civil Aviation Authority, such bird incidents occurred 8,011 times between 2012 and 2016.
