The Sun says Elton John's private jet had to make an emergency landing earlier this week after it suffered a hydraulic failure at 10,000 feet. Fire crews raced to the Farnborough Airport in the UK to meet the jet. A source tells the newspaper, “The terrible weather and epic gusts made it almost impossible to land. Two attempts to touch down failed. The plane was descending and was halfway along the runway when it gave up trying to hit the tarmac. It soared back in the air. A crowd had gathered after word went around that Elton was in difficulty. And as the plane came around again for a second attempt to land, the storm was doing its worst. The airport’s windsock was horizontal and the aircraft was being rocked from side to side by the wind. The pilot made a valiant attempt to get down with the jet ‘crabbing’ into the storm. But it didn’t make it and had to head back upwards. It was only at the third attempt to land that the plane got down. The pilot made a flatter approach and the wind had dropped slightly. Everyone watching was mightily relieved.”

My jaw hit the ground when I found out I am dating a former criminal. I had no idea because he goes by his middle name and not his first name. I discovered Jack's criminal past by Googling him. My friends and family say I should immediately dump him before it's too late. I love hanging out with Jack. He's given me no reason to believe that he's a criminal or is going to do anything to hurt me. In fact, he's been a total gentleman. Unlike my family and friends, I believe everyone deserves a second chance. They say he is putting on an act. Should I continue to date Jack or dump him?
