In a plane of course. :p

Poll requested by Nick-xx.


Me: Nope. I do fear of getting my elbows smashed by that cart the stewards push down the isle, but other than that, it's all good.

No. Just went on a plane for the first time (since I was too young to remember) a couple weeks ago and I loved it. :jmp:

23-01-08, 23:52
Never flied in one before. :p

23-01-08, 23:54
Yes, kinda. I get really nervous and stuff like that before the flight. A slight panic attack of some sort. It's not just planes, but all kinds of transportation. I just don't feel safe unless I'm the one driving. Maybe I just worry too much. *sigh*

I still travel a lot though.

Only if there is too much turbulence, otherwise no.

Every time I fly I want to be a pilot. Take-off is my favourite part.

No. I'm just bored actually, looking at nothing but clouds.

If there were better people in the world, then I wouldn't be afraid to fly in a plane. But those suicide bombers/high-jackers.. :ohn:

I'm with on the Final Destination thing.

But I enjoy flying, just not appreciating the thoughts of it.

Hum I voted no cause I'm not afraid of flying in itself. But I do feel extremely unconfortable in such a tight space for a long time. I'm not sure what it is though.

No. Was in the Air Force and have flown quite a bit all my life.

No every year i go to Mexico twice. So ive gotten pretty use to it since ive gone since i was a little kid. I just get nauseous.

really? that's awesome IMO :D

vespertea
24-01-08, 00:24
Yeah. I saw Final Destination when I was like.. 9, and it scarred me for life.

But as nerve-wrecking as it is, take off and landing is a blast. I hate it and love it all at once. I wish I had a reason to travel more so I could get used to flying.

EgyptianSoul
24-01-08, 00:28
I voted no 'cause I've only been on a plane once as a kid with my sister. I remember it was exciting and fun for about a 10 year old child, so I guess I wouldn't be afraid of flying even today.

Gregori
24-01-08, 00:32
I'm not afraid to fly,

I'm afraid of the airplane exploding into a couple a of a million pieces, being torn to shreads!

Thats called claustrophobia.

I have clause sometimes too. So you're not the only one.;)

Fear of flying? Nah... so far so good. :)

24-01-08, 00:39
Never had the pleasure of being in a plane, helicopter or any of that stuff.
So... I'm not really all that sure tbh.

They are BORING. I canŽt sit still for many hours. :(

Tihocan9
24-01-08, 01:56
No, I have been on them about 4 times ever since I was a baby so I have never had a reason to fear them.

star-dust
24-01-08, 01:57
Nope, not afraid of it. I like sitting on the window side and looking at the clouds.:cln:

tombraider123
24-01-08, 02:11
Never been in one, but I am dredding the day I might have to.

DREWY
24-01-08, 02:57
No. But if I stop flyin' and start fallin', then I'll be a bit worried!

CAISACO
24-01-08, 02:59
Hmmm... if I did that.. ^


I'd just sit back, and enjoy the crazy butterfly feeling :D


:vlol: JK, I'd be screaming my ass off

rowanlim
24-01-08, 03:01
Nope :wve:

SamReeves
24-01-08, 03:19
No, but flying on a commerical aircraft is a pain in the neck these days.

Evangelina
24-01-08, 03:28
Nope, but after last years flight to Japan on Singapore airlines I now get really nervous mid-flight.

The plane was delayed 2 hours because of engine failier and once we boarded everything seemed fine until we were about to take off and the engine failed again so that was another delay.
After another 3 hours we finally took off and mid-flight the power failed, after that came back on it got really turbulent... and I fell asleep.


Never using that airline again!

coolezpunk
24-01-08, 03:50
I'm not afraid, not at all. I've traveled by plane like, all the time cuz I LOVE traveling all over the world! But the only bad thing about planes is that I get a bit nauseous sometimes.

Mad Tony
24-01-08, 06:28
Nope, I'm not afraid to fly. Never have been.:)

Lara's Backpack
24-01-08, 06:28
Im alittle nervous before and during the flight, but only so slightly.

I was a wreck before I travelled the first time on one however - I think most people are, its just a fear of the unknown.

Jacen
24-01-08, 06:54
Dunno, I've never travelled in a plane...

Survival
24-01-08, 07:04
IŽve traveled by plane once... I was 12 years old and I loved it. Now I hate it and IŽll never travel by plane again! :)

KurtisLonely
24-01-08, 07:16
Yes terrified that there's a possibility that the plane will crash

PoetOfTheLife

There's a bigger chance you'll get hurt driving on the freeway. ;)

AAHHH I mystyped it!! Can you moderator move me to NO?


I'm not afraid to fly. :p

Sometimes, but not usually.

disneyprincess20
24-01-08, 09:00
I'm scared, mostly at take off and landing. I'm OK on longer flights, as I have time to recover in between. But on 45 mins/ 1 hour flights I'm awful, I cry for most of the flight. I took a 3 hour flight recently and calmed down in the middle, but the fact that we took off in the snow didn't help!

Beanz
24-01-08, 09:46
Nope, plane foods rank though :(.

Kamrusepas
24-01-08, 09:48
Nope. I've read that relatively more people die in car crashes than airplane crashes, anyways, so it should be pretty safe.

myrmaad
24-01-08, 09:55
Nope, plane foods rank though :(.

There was a time when it wasn't that bad, then it became so horrible you couldn't imagine it being worse. Then it got worse.

NemesisxAngelus
24-01-08, 09:56
No.

I love to fly by plane :D

24-01-08, 11:30
I only flew on a plane twice, and honestly, I was a bit scared, especially when I looked out the window.:yik:
Not to mention all those documentaries on horrible plane accidents. Creepy stuff. You always say "Nah, that's not going to happen to me", but you never know...:(

NightWish
24-01-08, 11:32

I'm sure you know, but the chances of you getting harmed in a plane is next to nothing :) you shouldn't let movies affect how you feel about e.g. travelling by plane :)

No. I'm just bored actually, looking at nothing but clouds.

:eek: you're bored looking at the clouds?? That's my favourite part of flying! It's so beautiful when your ascent takes you above the land of clouds... it makes me dream of many strange things.. :) really, I wish I could look at that way more often... it's so tranquil and.. well, I'm getting off track :p - NO, not afraid to fly in a plane :)

kryptonite23
24-01-08, 11:35
No need to be scared :p

Ada the Mental
24-01-08, 12:01
Never traveled in a plane yet.
Actually I am somewhat scared of the plane crashing (the fact that I used to regularly watch a documentary about falling planes on TV didn't help much), but not enough to stop me from eventually getting on one...

Sedge
24-01-08, 12:19
Absolutely love it, not afraid at all. ^__^
The only thrilling part of the whole flight thing is when you wait for your ears to pop after landing.. XD

Angel_14
24-01-08, 12:30
Nope, but I should be. XD I was about to fly for the first time of my life in 2003 and when the plane was about to take off, it suddenly started slowing down and the Stewardess said that "We can't take off due to some technical problems".

Marija_Croft
24-01-08, 12:31
Of course not, I traveled with a plane thousands of times. :D

Love it. Have flown about 11times (Only in 3 seperate holidays) And i Lawv it. And you'd think my constant watching of "Flightplan" would scare me, but it doesnt. Loooove Flying :)

Colin125
24-01-08, 12:37
Nope. Been on a plane loads of times.

Νο, Ι have travelled by plane many times (including an 18-hour flight to Thailand). I'm not afraid of flying but when it becomes bumpy I start to get scared!

petujaymz
24-01-08, 13:04
Yes.

I'm fine once in the air, but even so, I'm gonna get hold of some valium for next time.

Flying is the safest form of transport apparently, yet if something goes wrong, more often than not it means certain death. You can't say the same for travelling by train or car.

:wve:

tomblover
24-01-08, 13:24
I don't mind flying with planes. :)

The only thing I'm afraid of is dying of being bored.

deepbluesea
24-01-08, 13:37
Yes but only because the only time i ever flew was going to and from iraq

Chiki Mina
24-01-08, 13:48

I'm used to it.

I don't think it's claustrophobia though, for example, I spent two weeks sleeping on a tiny bed inside a motorhome and I loved that it was so cozy. In airplanes it's just diferent, I feel stuck in a small space in an environment I have absolutely no control over!

Nope, I love take off the best.

Even better when the flight has some turbulance. :p :D

Earthcane
24-01-08, 16:44
No.

Albeit, the take is kinda nauseating (sp?). :tmb:

Also, a plane is nothing but a metal box with wings and turbines..... :whi:

Grenade
24-01-08, 16:53
No I am not. :)

Tina Croft
24-01-08, 18:21
i'm not afraid, too. the only thing, which made me insecure, was, that i couldn't hear anything on my right ear for a hour after flying the last time! lol

trXD
24-01-08, 18:39
I love it especially turbulance!

~*~Chloe~*~
24-01-08, 18:54

Not a priori. :)

But fear appears very quickly.
Only hearing one : CRACK! :yik::whi:

:ton: <------ Can fly this smile??? :D

Cord_Croft
24-01-08, 19:05
I'm fine flying, it's just the walkway at the airport to get into the plane that freaks me out xD

Never traveled on plane but i wouldnt be afraid of traveling in one.

Tomb Raider Master

Not really.

tweetygwee
24-01-08, 19:28
No. Funny thing is, first landing I ever had was really bumpy (no, it wasn't the other day :vlol: , it was over a year ago) but it was my first... so I didn't know! I'm more afraid of losing luggage, pickpockets and the general stress of the airport. Flying's the best part.

Noodleboy
24-01-08, 19:46
I actually love to fly :) I love the view when flying over the clouds. As if you are high in the snowy mountains.

I do hate to land though.

Cochrane
24-01-08, 19:58
It's not my favorite method of traveling (that would be trains), but I am not afraid of it.

marla_singer
24-01-08, 20:05
Absolutely love flying/travelling :D still get slightly travel sick though haha

Angel666
24-01-08, 21:15
After take off I'm just bored. My biggest fear on a plane is that someone in my vicinity will get airsick. I fly almost every summer so I really can't afford to have a fear of flying.

MadCroy101
24-01-08, 21:50
Honestly, i have a great fear of flying. I feel as if the windows would suck out into oblivion, and i would such out of the window, falling to my death.

Twilight
25-01-08, 00:47
no. flew on it twice. the first time was amazing to Florida. it looked like we were in heaven, cuz all the clouds. then u see the land and all the bodies of water.
the second time was not so great, we were coming from Florida, so i felt crappy, my stomach hurt, and i eventually threw up, but we were already home by then.
still, its not scary. just go when your not trying to battle the weather.

Librarian
25-01-08, 00:52
No I'm not afraid of flying. I love it :D Taking off is especially fun.
