A bumpy flight saw two Real Madrid stars seek comfort in the cockpit for their trip to Almeria yesterday, it has been revealed.

Marca says the 50-minute flight from Madrid to Almeria became uncomfortable for passengers due to stormy weather conditions.

While several Real players cracked jokes during the turbulence, Gabriel Heinze and Javier Saviola sought reassurance from the pilot and took seats at the head of the plane to calm their nerves.

Real Madrid drew 1-1 with Almeria last night.
