Brandon Flowers' Bono regret

Brandon Flowers regrets not flying with Bono.

The Killers frontman turned down the chance to take a trip in the U2 rocker's private plane because he has such a severe fear of flying.

He revealed: "My biggest regret is having to turn down a trip in Bono's personal jet."

The 'Mr. Brightside' singer - who penned 'Why Do I Keep Counting' about his phobia - has been scared of taking to the air for years and still receives therapy to help him overcome the terror.

He explained: "I'd never flown before The Killers.

"When I fly now I listen to a tape of a session I had with the good doctor. I hear him talking and let my body become a blob. "One thing that sent me over the edge was the time a woman died on one of my flights. I still don't know what happened, but I'd been asleep for probably 10 minutes when I woke up to screaming and saw the steward pumping on this lady's chest. It was traumatic. I tried not to watch."
