Have you ever been on a plane you thought was about to crash?

I was in Chicago for a speaking event at the University of Chicago's School of Business yesterday... and my flight kept getting delayed from 5pm to 7:30pm... to finally 10:15pm. And the flight from Chicago to KC felt like it was going to crash.

That was the most intense, turbulent flight, out of easily over 100 flights that, I've ever experienced... I was lifted up off my seat several times and it shook open overhead bins. The pilot fought to keep the wings balanced through approximately 45 minutes of thinking this may be my last day on Earth.

I'm still nauseous, although grateful to be alive and on the ground... count your blessings today and hug your loved ones. You never know when it's your time to leave this rock. ♥

Now tomorrow morning, I fly to New Orleans. UGH. Don't feel like flying right now, actually. I need more than a day to get my balls to descend.

Has anything similar happened to you?

I've been on a couple flights with heavy turbulance do to weather. They were kind of scarry. I laughed at one guy who had a wad of chew and spitting in a can, he dump it all over himself.

Another flight to Orlando Fl. the landing was horible thought that the jet was going to break apart in~mid~air only being on the ground.

Yeah, that weather pattern between KC and Chicago was pretty intense. I've never experienced anything remotely like that in the air... and all my life I've had zero fear of flying... But, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't shitting bricks a bit about flying tomorrow morning.

Wife and I took a plane to Tampa, FL in spring 2009. It was very turbulent for a large chunk of the flight. Never been on a flight with that much turbulence and for that long.

She has always hated flying but I'm usually okay with it. But this flight made me feel a little nauseous. And she was very sick by the time we got on the ground. Thank God the guy sitting by us has a nurse for a wife. He knew to get her an ice pack to help with the nausea.

Head to your family doctor and tell him.

I ****ing HATE flying, I've actually froze in the terminal before and missed my flight. So my doc gives me Xanax.

Last summer flew back from Dallas to Des Moines with 2 severe T-storm cells bracketing the Des Moines airport, one to the SW and one to the NE.

The pilot turned a 30-minute approach into a 5-minute PLUNGE to the runway. People around me were crying. I just smiled.

came home from vegas once and had to come down into KCI through intense thunderstorms. I swear to god, the Pilot told the flight attendands to "take your seats immediately" right after telling all of us "it is pretty rough weather but were going to TRY to poke on through it". Really? Try? I about came out of my seat several times. didn't fly for a couple years after that.

Oh man... yeah, that sounds similar to what I went through last night. I have to "cowboy up" and fly tomorrow at 6:30... fuuuuu

I may have to take htismaqe's advice and get a prescription today or something... maybe 2 pills. One for the flight to New Orleans and one for the way back.

1970, flying a HU16D (the military version of the sea plane you saw on fantasy island) from Guam to Okinawa. Port side generator went out ( I am the AE, electrician on the flight) then the starboard one went out (old carbon pile voltage regulators) so we were just running on the APU. I had the overhead compartment to the wing apart working on the right regulator, with everything totally hot, and luckily got it fixed.


Flying an old H34D Helicopter, we lost a tail rotor. My Captain was an old salt with lots and lots of hours. He instantly got the air speed up as high as it would go so the air across the fuselage kept the copter from going 360, and he landed that old magnesium thing at over 90 knots on the runway.

Lots of deals like this, but in Civilian aircraft there has only been one scary one. Weather like you described had the plane dropping 40 to 50 feet at a time instantly.

I had a scary one when I was taking off from Lima, Peru a few years ago. Immediately after takeoff the plane went significantly lower in power and we started losing altitude. My buddy and I looked at each other and both of us thought we were going down.

Shortly after we powered back up and went to normal cruising altitude and continued on with the flight. Two hours later the pilot came over the intercom, "Some of you were wondering what happened after takeoff. The tower had us take off directly at a landing plane so we had to descend quickly to duck underneath it." Scary stuff.
