Qualified pilot Gary Numan once came within minutes of certain death when his plane's engines stopped working during a flight over an ocean.
The Cars hitmaker holds a pilot's licence and owns several aircraft, but his passion for flying nearly ended in tragedy during one trip.
He tells Britain's FHM magazine, "I was flying a light aircraft 12,000 feet above the sea when both engines stopped running. It takes several minutes to clamber out on land, so scrambling out when it was sinking into the ocean was highly unlikely. Fortunately the engines came back just in time."
