Victoria Beckham braves emergency landing

Monday August 9, 2010

Victoria Beckham managed to stay calm on board a plane that was forced to make an emergency landing on Saturday.

The British Airways jumbo jet was one hour into travelling from London to Los Angeles when it had to be diverted back to Heathrow after a fault was discovered in the fuel system.

According to The Sun, Victoria was left shaken by the incident.

A source told the paper: "She was flying on her own so it was a scary moment and she didn't have anyone to turn to."

Despite her nerves, and amongst hundreds of alarmed passengers, Posh not only kept her cool but also handled the situation to her advantage - the 36-year-old used the delay to change her outfit.

She arrived at Heathrow in a blue and white slip dress but was photographed in denim shorts and a jacket on landing back at the London airport.

A British Airways spokeswoman said: "There was no risk at any time to the customers on board."
