    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 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.

    Back around 2002, I went on an airplane to

    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...

    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...

    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. :)

    I have been on a plane many times at least over 10 times,and my favorite part is all ways the take-off. This is so awesome, the feel of the pressure and rising at such a high speed. Out of all the plane trips I have had I will never forget this one.   I was on Delta Airlines...

    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

    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...

    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.

    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 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

    We hopped around on 8 different ones

    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.
