Bono's private plane in hatch drama

U2 frontman Bono's private plane lost a hatch as it was coming in for a landing in the German capital but the Irish singer was never in danger.

Berlin Airport spokesman Ralf Kunkel told the news agency dpa that the rear hatch landed in the vicinity of Schoenefeld airport, on Berlin's south-eastern edge.

Kunkel said it was not clear how the hatch came off and that German authorities were investigating.

He said the aircraft, which was flying from Dublin, was never in danger of crashing and landed safely. Bono is in Berlin for the Bambi awards.
