Music legend SIR Elton John was furious with his pilot on Wednesday (26MAY04) - for landing his private jet in the wrong city.

The I'M STILL STANDING singer, 57, was expecting to land in Palermo, Sicily, but was horrified when the plane's captain landed 320 kilometres (200 miles) away at Lamezia airport on the Italian mainland.

A source says, "It was so embarassing for the poor bloke. It would have been bad enough with normal holidaymakers.

"But Elton's not exactly renowned for his understanding if things don't do according to plan."

The pilot quickly apologised to the bespectacled star and flew Sir Elton to Palermo just in time for his concert at the VELDROME.
