Postby acsguitar » Thu Jul 21, 2005 3:00 pm

Ok so I don't know if I've mentioned it before but I am terrified of flying...

My dad investigates airplane crashes and although I've been on 60+ flights in my life I get super nervous and my stomach is pretty much wrecked.

anyways someone give me some advice or make me laugh cause I have to fly tommorrow and its making me nervous.ahhhhh :-P
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Don't worry man, I was afraid of flying before but you get used to it. You will be fine man. Some advice would bring some music or a Porno for the washroom :-D

But yeah, just bring some music and a magazine to read.

The best thing though, is just sleep your flight through.

Not sure, but maybe you could say that it's like 9:00 pm in your time-zone and you need to get used to it. ;-)

i've flown a lot in my life so far, and the best thing is falling asleep or losing yourself in something, a book, magazine, gameboy, whatever you want. i'm good with losing myself in something and sitting for a long time so it's easy for me, but of you can basically forget that you're on a plane, it'll go fast. if you hit turbulence i always get annoyed at the plane for interrupting my sleep rather than getting scared. i find that helps for even the worst turbulance. hope that helps.

So will you be flying into....er....over O:-) , mountains, or the ocean? :-D

Just remember that if you lose one engine, the other engine will be able take you all the way to the scene of the crash. :-b

Just kidding, it will be fine I'm sure. ;-D

You won't be afraid of commercial airplanes if you have ever ride on a one engine airplane.

I have, the scariest trip of my life so far. The airplane was shaky and you know you are dead if the engine blow off :-o

Good for you, Boeing usually have more than one engine :-D

my scariest flight was in india. it was basically a one hour shuttle flight, so the plane was very small and, since it was india, rickety and all that. you really feel the turbulence on a small plane. that's one of the few flights that i actually get scared sometime during the flight. commercial airlines are nothing compared to that :-°
