I came back from Spain today and had my worst 10 minutes in my life. On a plane. Turbulence. 

I'm little bit nervous when I'm on a plane and this what happened today doesn't help my fears.
There's always some turbulence but this wasn't small and It was horrible. 

After meal as the stuerts started serving coffee and tea it began. Shaking, up, down...
A lady behind me got her drinks flying in the wall. 
Actually I remember I was asking god in my mind that is this it ? Am I gonna die ?
Luckily it stopped when the pilot changed the course and went lower. My wife said that I look pale and I was sweating. 

I remember when the wheels hit the ground and thouhgt myself ok now I'm really safe.

But this fellow doesn't fly for while. 

Anybody else had similar turbulence or other fears in the plane ?

Yeah this can be uncomfortable. I studied air traffic academy and having knowledge about the aircraft systems really helps me relax during a flight. It's just that airplane is still a most secure way of transportation. On opposite - I do really feel uncomfortable traveling by car or bus... unsure.gif

I didn't traveled so much on a place, just 2-3 times, and it was all good. I like flying (for now hheehhe biggrin.gif )

Turbulence happened on my first plane flight, but I didn't find it that scary smile.gif It was a bit shaky, but nothing special. I guess I was over-excited to travel by plane biggrin.gif

I have traveled by plane a few times in my life. It's pretty fun. I just don't know if I want to go through all the crazy security. I guess it's only that crazy here in the USA? If so.... mad.gif

I remember when the plane turned (I was 7 years old) and the cart with ice went all over me. biggrin.gif Not a big deal. Just felt sorry for the waitress because she was sorry it had happened. I don't remember being that bothered by the slight turbulence that occurred.
