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 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 stratches (I had a large bruise on my knee apparently from banging my knee against the seat in front me during the turbulence).
Holy shit, man...

You know... in the grand scheme of things, it's amazing how few plane crashes there are... I kept telling myself that last night. Trying to psyche myself up... Oh, planes don't crash...

Yeah, dude you know me. Mr. Gotta Look At This Rationally. I'm scared to death of flying but the statistics just aren't there.

You have a better chance of getting mauled to death by a rabid badger than dying in a plane crash.

I would have preferred to delay it, actually. I'd like to see a satellite photo of that storm... anyone know where they keep those?

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.

flying back from new york city we dropped so much the flight attendants fell down and the tough new york guys were screaming like little girls.

then they got on the intercom and asked for special agent jeff lanza to the cockpit immediately. this was in 2002 BTW.

I flew from KCI to Vegas a few years ago and right after takeoff we started to bank to the left. The pilot banked to hard and the engine cut out. We dropped about 100 feet of altitude in no time flat. He got the plane leveled out and the engine started. Climbed a little more and went to turn again and the engine did it again. The second time we dropped even further. I had a window seat facing down at the ground. I was convinced I was dead. I'll never fly fun jet again.

Flew back from Nashville in November and our arrival was with the leading edge of a serious storm. Like, we arrived when the wind gusts and shit from the storm are going nuts.


I'm like you and usually have zero issues with flying, but this scared the shit out of me. The scariest part to me were the 50-75 foot sudden DROPs in altitude. I kept thinking, "What if that happens when we're 50-75 feet above the ground?" We were also wobbly as hell just prior to landing. We literally burst into applause when we landed.

We were on a little bitty jet as well. Like a 30 passenger one.

I was flying to Atlanta one time (probably 2002ish) and hit some really rough air. I think it must have caught the pilots off guard or something, because usually there's some sort of warning (flight attendants take your seats, etc). There was none of that. All of a sudden I'm damn near airborne and I have to stretch to catch my laptop that has bounced off the tray in front of me. It was a real chore putting my computer away without bashing my head into the seat in front of me. There was probably a half hour or so of pretty aggressive elevation changes and bouncing around.

Nothing like what others have described, but bad enough that pretty much everyone on the plane was looking around nervously.

I always kind of got a kick out of turbulence. I think it's kind of fun AND I enjoy seeing the freaked out people.

I flew from Key west to Miami in a propeller job back in 1996. only flying at 9,000 ft. the weather in key west was sunny and 82 degrees, in Miami it was raining and 65 degrees. we flew right through this purple cloud and all hell broke loose. the soda flew out of my cup and stuck to the ceiling, my ass was off the seat by like 3 inches for about 7 or 8 seconds (seat belt was tightened after that) and the drink cart almost started flying around the cabin. I bent the arm rest and thought I bought the farm. even the flight attendant was scared. needless to say I kissed the ground in Miami.

Never again with propellers
