Singer Ronan Keating prayed for his life when his private jet ran into mechanical problems while attempting to land.

The former BOYZONE star's terrifying ordeal began when the wheels on his Cessna jammed as it approached to land at LONDON HEATHROW on Sunday (16NOV03) night.

The pilot was forced to take drastic action and swiftly pulled up the plane so the wheels could be released manually, and when they did eventually touch down safely, Keating - who is well known for his fear of flying - was left visibly shaken.

He says, "I'll be honest, there was a point when I was praying for my life. It was terrifying. I'm only just get over my fear of flying, which I've seen specialists about."
