    Re: Another Reason NOT TO FLY - Planes Fall-Apart!

    That statement is a little dramatic..even for me. I doubt there are too many people in this forum who are more afraid of flying than I am...but even I recognize that the outcome of this crash was pretty miraculous.. That the plane stayed together as well as it did under the circumstances is remarkable. It is clearly a well made plane in that sense and contributed to the high survival rate.

    This is the first major plane crash in the US since 2001. That is a pretty remarkable safety record.

    Re: Another Reason NOT TO FLY - Planes Fall-Apart!

    In response to ms_obstinate's comment:

    I am scared to death of planes....have been my entire life. I've been on planes three times, furthest was to the Bahamas. I haven't been on one since 1984.

    When we traveled to DC, my son and I took the train while the rest of the family flew. In 1993, drove back and forth to Florida...and have driven to Toronto and Niagara Falls.

    I can't say my fear increased after 9/11 because I've always been petrified of flying. The scene in Rainman when Tom Cruise is trying to get Dustin Hoffman on the plane.....yeah, that's me.

     

     




    I have been since the age of 10. Funny..I can't say my fear increased after 911 either and truthfully I've flown more since 911..but that is probably because I made an effort to overcome my phobia only to realize that I would never be able to fly without medication.  I am supposed to go to Toronto next summer with hubbie, hubbie's best friend and the best friend's wife. The wife and I are already making plans to drive and send the guys on the plane...lol

    The year after that I'm supposed to go to Hawaii. That will be the longest..and I am still not sure I will be able to do it. For now I am trying not to think about it.
