Fear of Flying
I’m sure there’s a name for this, like a phobia,
or something but I’m going to call it fear of flying. I don’t have it
but I know someone who does. A good friend of mine will only travel by
car, train or boat.
I fly often, to be honest I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve flown
in my life, but the older I get, the more anxious I am when I board a
plane. Maybe it’s age. People say that we get more frightened and
nervous of things as we get older because we value life more.
A plane I was in nearly crashed once. I was in India and I flew in a
small, two-engine plane that missed the runway and had to circle around
for another try. It was very scary!
Statistics say that it’s safer to fly than to drive, but it certainly
doesn’t feel that way when you’re up in the air. Personally, if I could
choose, I’d rather take a train. It feels a lot safer, you’re on the
ground and you can enjoy the view or have a sleep or read a book until
you reach your destination.
