After having read and heard about all the Air Crash Incidents recently, Iím beginning to have butterflies in my tummyÖespecially when Iím due to travel in few months time.

Quite strange never had this feeling before !

Am I starting to develop errmm what you call a "Flight Phobia" ?? :eek:

Mate, look at it this way.

How many people are killed in car accidents daily? How may people die from shark attacks (or sting-ray).

If it's your time to go, there ain't squat you can do about it ;)









On a serious note (I know, my last didn't really help), look at the number of flights that are in the air at any time of the day. From where I sit here on our Traffic Situation Display (a long range radar if you wil), I can see christ knows how many thousands of flights that are airborne just over North America. Unfortunately, it's the one or two bad reports you hear that you remember.

Yeah I know what you mean :)

Perhaps I'll just cross my fingers before boarding and tell our dear Pilots not to f**k the Landing ! :}

exactly.

there are about 45 000 planes in the air daily, all around the world. and only very rarely anything happens.

so if i was you, i would just get on that plane and enjoy the flight. :)

and if you still feel uncomfortable, how about visiting a forum that is made for people with flight phobia?! maybe that will help you...
and maybe next time you fly you can ask the cabin crew whether you can visit the pilots in the cockpit. ;)

You stand a greater chance of death whilst travelling TO the airport, by whatever form of transport that you choose (including walking across the street).
Do you have a phobia about crossing the road, travelling in a car, on a bus or on a train?
