Pet Shop Boys Meteor Scare

British pop stars the PET SHOP BOYS narrowly avoided death when fragments of a meteor missed hitting a plane they were travelling on. Bandmembers NEIL TENNANT and CHRIS LOWE were sleeping onboard a LAN Chile Airbus flight from Chile to New Zealand, when the burning rock fragments zoomed past the plane - missing the aircraft by just 40 seconds. Tennant, 52, says, "We were blissfully unaware of it. We didn't know anything had happened until the next morning when the waitress at breakfast said, 'Are you glad to be alive?' "Then we realised with horror what had happened. Our friends and families started calling us in a panic to find out if we were ok."
