Top Gear host James May crashes camper-dirigible near freeway

Recommended Posts

If you’ve read today’s newspapers you’re probably aware that James May has had a spot of bother with an airship.

The good news is that our brave hero has emerged from the slightly scratched wreckage UNHARMED.

After PLUMMETING to the ground at a MASSIVE two miles an hour, May’s craft SLAMMED into a small bush and then just sort of STOPPED. Thankfully, trained rescue staff were on the scene in seconds to intercept James as he stepped out of the airship and were able to administer a much needed flask of TEA and some NICE BISCUITS.

May has since returned home for a SIT DOWN and some light piano practise, after which he is reported to be “very well, thank you for asking”.

For more details of this quite near-death experience you’ll have to tune in to the new series, coming to your television later this year.

If you have not seen the YouTube posting of James May on the U2 Spyplane...the footage and music is what we have come to expect from Top Gear.

I am quite proud of the U2 program, as my uncle flew that bird as well as the SR-71...it is a rare treat to see the world from that perspective.

Glad Captain Slow survived yet another challenge.
