    I worked engineering and wiring at Boeing for 23 years. Trust me when I tell you, BE AFRAID.
    Currently, over 300 737 aircraft have faulty parts on the wings alone. Flaps, air brakes etc.
    The AVERAGE commercial jetliner has over 1500 moving parts as well. In many cases, things like the jack screw are worn, partially stripped or very stripped.
    I have heard other engineers and aircraft maintenance personnel say on numerous occasions;
    "This plane should have crashed already". Worn parts are replaced in a hush hush environment. To quote a famous airline crash investigator. "It's about profit, NOTHING MORE. A few hundred dead passengers every 10 years is simply the cost of doing business".

    Im terrified of flying tbh I only fly rarely and with the best airlines even if i have to save up for a long time to do so. Even then im terrified i literally just drink a ton of alcohol before so i go to sleep and dont think about it.

    What I can’t seem to handle during flying is that weightless feeling. Flew on Southwest from OAK to PHX, really bumpy ride all the way down to the runway as we landed due to the wind and turbulence. After we landed I almost chirped my chips in a trash can... Wish I knew how to get rid of that feeling...

    Breathing techniques! They always try to solve these issues with 'Breathing Techniques' Yea sure. Yeah I took some deep breaths and now there's no way the plane can crash into the ground at 500mph

    He's not lying as someone trying to get into aviation ha. Hours (experience) are everything and even if you have them, airlines will test you for the 'big boy' positions. If you are anxious, and reading this, know you are tremendously safe flying. Even the technology their working with.... man it'd bring back the witch trials just 40 years ago it's that fine tuned and amazing... So you're fine!!

    if your at 35000 feet and your pilot announces your going to crash, this is what to do, you have 2 options. option 1, grab drink trolley and help yourself. option 2, grab stewardess or alternatively grab both.

    none of us go into a cinema, or bar and ask for a seat next to the very large fuel tank, or claim to want to zip through the air 7 miles above the earth at 500mph beside this fuel tank and 300 other assorted idiots we dont know and then come off pretending to be happy. yet one mention of flying being dangerous and the question is challenged.

    Yo is it true that when you get on a plane, you don’t really feel any motion..? Even when the plane flys not in a straight line? I have never been on a plane really..and yes I’m one of the people that are scared of planes even when I haven’t been on one.

    Every time I get to the airport I feel like I’m being narrated for the next air crash investigation episode.. “Josh went to get a coffee 30 minutes before boarding his flight TT 354, little did he know the doomed flight would be his last”.

    Car crash has higher change, but there is alot of more possibility of surviving, while plane crash has lower change, but when it happens it has very low change of surviving.

    The problem with flying is if something does happen you know your going to die for a couple seconds while the plane goes down. If its a car crash or walking its almost instant and you dont see it coming. If you do survive a wreck or getting hit you usally go into shock so its easier to deal with that that just knowing your life is going to end in a couple of seconds.

    It’s not the flying it’s the lack of control and nothing to do. I a control freak I even hate driving in people’s cars . I have to drive where ever I go for the most part. I know this is stupid as if I could fly the plane. Also I also have had plan crash dream most of my adult life starting in my late teens. It’s never me on the plane it’s always me watching the plane crash. I worked on the ramp when I was just out of high school . I know how silly this is. It’s less save to get in your car then a commercial air craft. Think about all the flight the take off and land on a daily bases with no issue. Like I said it’s the lack of control .

    Yes but didn’t say they are moving at 650 to 700Mph so 100 miles is more of a dead stick crash based on how much control they have over the aircraft.

    " Engines don't make planes fly,wings do",as the captain said.
    There has to be a catastrophic incident for it to crash Pilots are trained for many different emergencies.....

    Am i the only one who is afraid of flying due to claustrophobia and not necessarily about any issue with the plane or flight?!.

  • Tim VeePee
    Tim VeePee 2 months ago

    Forget what he is saying.
    Here is the issue with planes and its simple.
    No one on the plane is qualified to fly the plane, other than the people in the cockpit.
    Machines have one single problem. THEY BREAK! It's not a matter of why, or how or where. IT WHEN!!!!
    When a plane decides to break for whatever the reason, if the people in the cockpit cant solve the problem; you're going to die.
    It not like being in a car. If you are in a car and the driver passes out or something, a potential person sitting in the front passenger seat, can use common sense and potentially drive a car and bring it to a safe stop if they have quick reaction and don't panick. And even if they can't and you crash, because you are on on the ground, you could survive.
    I am have flown for up to 3 hours. I'm ok once the plane is at cruising altitude for the most part.
    I know flying is the safest way to travel. And yes planes don't crash as often as cars.
    Fear is a normal human trait. People who dont fear things, do stupid things like climb Mt Everest or tall buildings or jump from perfectly working airplanes for a rush.
    Of course no one gets on a plane thinking its gonna have mechanical issues and crash. But that doesn't mean it's not at the back of your mind.
    TWA 800 if you have never seen or heard of it is a situation where having a reasonable amount of fear is ok.
    But if you are terrified of flying then the simple thing is don't.
    I plan to take my first flight over an ocean. I want it to be a one way trip because if I make it, I have zero plans to return.
    20 hours on a plane is I am assuming a very fearful amount of time to spend in the air.
    Planes to ne are more vulnerable than cars. A bird strike can down a commercial jet. If a bird flew through your windshield in a car, as long as you are a good driver, nothing should go wrong.
    Im not scared to death, but nothing he says will make the fear go away.
    If God wanted man to fly, he would have gave him wings. Don't birds have them? Don't some insects have them?
    Flying is an awesome achievement of modern technology, but it has a flaw. Its creator is flawed and this anything he makes will be too. And because of this a reasonable fear of flying is justified.
