James May on his near-death experience and new Top Gear

He is lucky to be alive!

44w ago


James May is known for being 'captain slow' but this near death experience proves he is much more of a risk-taker than we believed.

James was flying a light aircraft in strong winds and ended up upside down on the runway which could have ended horrifically. Luckily he was left unharmed and just knocked his knee. He also had a passenger on board but he wasn't badly injured.

James May also talks about what he thinks of the new Top Gear and his friend, Chris Harris. It is a nice little interview and made me want to watch the new special even more.

  • If there is one thing I don't envy about James's life it's that he has to talk to Piers Morgan.

    • Yes the preamble text above should have contained more of a warning that he was doing the interview.

  • For some odd reason he looked a bit „ticket off“ during the whole SeaMan episode.

  • Pierce Morgan- his usual self. Who cares about his co-host’s birthday.

    James looked so uncomfortable there, was it a forced interview!!
