    The Airplane Experience

    I was on an Airplane only twice. I was going to Switzerland to visit my uncle. Anyway nothing much happened on the firts flight - I was really excited to be on a plane for the first time. So I didn't notice the shabby service I got. The second time was a different story. When...

    First Time

    The first time i was on an airplane I was 7. I flew from Miami, Florida to Ashville, North Carolina by myself. Back then you could do that. That was my fondest memory. My bedroom was in the attic of an old house on about 5 acres, next to a creek, with a tire swing. I...

    I have been a lot of times.

    ;o I think my first was to NC from NJ when I was 3? Then I went to Dominican Republic, Disney World, Michigan. Probably NC more, but I don't really remember.

    I Used to Be Scared, But Now I Love Flying

    The first time i got on a plane was last year when i flew to Chicago and i was so nervous and scared. I wasn't sure how it was going to feel to feel the plane lift up off of the ground. It was certainly a weird feeling that time, but it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. I...

    Wow!

    We had an airshow by 1946 and 1945 prop planes a few weeks ago. I wanted to go up in one, but one of my husband's friends had a Cessna and he said he would take me up.  I loved it.  Cessas are small, so it was a bit like flying a riding law mower with wings!  It was fun.  It...

    I've only been on an airplane once,

    and that was a round trip to Los Angeles. I live in central California and as a a Christmas present back in 2008, me and my whole family went to Disneyland. It's normally a six hour trip by car, but my parents wanted me to experience flying in an airplane. We went to San...

    I'd travel by plane everyday

    if I could! It's always so exciting and scary at the same time. I love it and will always love it. But now I don't think I will ever enter a plane without mh370 and mh17 on my mind

    I recently flew back from South Carolina.

    I hate flying unless I have a reason to. In 2008, I flew to Seattle with my grandma and at that time she was going through chemo for breast cancer so she needed company. I went but the whole time we were flying I held on to her skirt and didn't let go until we were off. In three...

    First Time

    The first time I was ever on a plane, I was 21 (a little delayed, I know) and was with my fiance at the time. The night before he insisted we watched Final Destination, and the plane blows up. I'm thinking this was the wrong movie to watch before getting on a plane for the first...

    I travel a lot and airplanes go with the

    territory . Do I like them ? HELL NO There something to be said about controlling your own surroundings . I'd prefer to drive cross country in a couple days than to fly it in 6hrs anytime. Just me though, ALONE If my family is involved, I'm flyin' Like I'd have a choice!

    Flying

    Yes, I've flown a few times. I absolutely HATE flying. I am terrified of it, in fact. There are so many stories, of late, about pilots falling asleep, Tower guys falling asleep and not watching where the planes are going and so many accidents averted, that when I do fly, I'll...

    i remember as a kid being sat in a cockpit with

    the pilots.....times have changed somewhat...alas the food hasn't and it's rare that i taste airline food that's any good. Strangely peanuts seem to improve with altitude. Last week had the misfortune to have to take a 19h flight...just impossible to get comfy in a plane seat.

    To Boldly Go Where Others Have Gone Before

    visit my relatives in Vietnam. I was around 5-6 years old then. I remember running around inside the plane, and oh my goodness, I was an energetic kid, who didn't have a care in the world. I'd bother the flight attendants for candies and toys. They gave me chocolates and these...

    We hopped around on 8 different ones

    when my family took a trip to Switzerland. That was only on the way there. It was too surreal for me to be scared. I was only like 11 at the time. I enjoyed it though :)

    I have only been on an airplane once.

    It was a school trip to Washington DC, and I couldn't tell you how excited I was to be on a plane for the very first time. I was not scared or nervous it was amazing. I would love to go on another trip in an airplane again.

    One of my favorite parts about traveling long

    distance is the airplane ride itself. Sure the airport and the boarding can be hectic, but there's just something about gliding over the world and all of its worries that makes one quietly content. :)

    Kind of goes with the territory.

    ..if you know what I'm saying. "So Bob, how many hours do you have logged?" "Oh, about 12,000." "What kind of planes have you flown?" "Oh, I've never been in a plane." That would get a strange reaction.

    I actually really enjoy flying!

    I always get a window seat so I can see outside of everything, and it's really amazing to see clouds from such a different perspective!
