British actress Keira Knightley was caught in a terrifying thunderstorm while flying back to London after the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles last week (ends10MAR06). The jet, which also had Kylie Minogue's partner Olivier Martinez on board, diverted to nearby Luton after missing its landing slot at London Heathrow as a result of the severe weather conditions. Knightley then had to be driven to London, as staff at Luton airport didn't have the towbar needed to get the plane back on its way to Heathrow. A British Airways spokesman says, "A special Jumbo towbar had to be sent from Heathrow by road. "As time was dragging we ferried passengers there by coach."
