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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

5 years ago I was flying on a small plane from Miami to Gainesville, FL and there were two hurricanes off the coast of Florida, in addition to the usual Florida summer thunderstorms.

For the entire flight the plane jumped up and plunged down several hundred feet (at least). Several people on the plane were throwing up from motion sickness and the only flight attendant on the airplane was crying and praying.

I took 4 Tylenol PM tablets to knock myself out and when I woke up, we had landed at the Gainesville airport and the plane was a mess... food, beverages spilled everywhere, and several passengers had bruises and scratches (I had a large bruise on my knee apparently from banging my knee against the seat in front me during the turbulence).
