Lionel Messi’s £11m Gulfstream V private jet, was forced to make an emergency landing at Brussels, Belgium after it’s landing gear developed fault mid-air on Friday.
The identity of who was on board hasn’t been revealed, but the plane was on it’s way to Tenerife, Spain, before it grounded at Zaventem Airport in the Belgian capital for the first time at 9.18am
Almost 30 minutes later, the plane took off again only to quickly return back to Brussels.
The aircraft hasn’t been bought by the football star but he regularly hires it, and even personalized the interiors of the jet with his son’s names and labelled the plane tail with No.10.
Information from Flight Aware shows the aircraft flew from San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentina to Guararapes aiport in Recife, Brazil, a 5h 51m flight. The flight then took off from Recife at 7.19pm local time last night, before quickly stopping at Brussels this morning.
