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 have flown several times along the gulf coast from Dallas to Gulf Port, Mississippi in a puddle jumper. Another time we were flying commercial from Atlanta to Philadelphia and the plane lost hydraulics on the left side of the aircraft and had to return to Atlanta about 30 minutes into the flight. I had a Air National Guard pilot sitting behind. We are dumping fuel is not a good thing to hear while in the air. The Air National Guard pilot was giving a play by play of what was going on. We only got from the pilot was we are having troubles. We land in Atlanta the sides of the runway was lined with emergency vehicles on both sides and all of the gates of that side of the airport were empty. They comped the room for the night and we about $25 to spend at the hotel for the night.

I took a puddle jumper from Honolulu to Kauai in '95 where the cross winds were awful. I was on the window and as we were landing all I could see out the window was sky, ground, sky, ground. Over and over. Turbulence is one thing but landing in heavy cross winds was terrible. Sometimes it can be hairy getting into San Diego also. You wouldn't think that but it has been an adventure a couple of times for me there.

Having spent 3 years working on planes people wonder why I don't fly sober.

I flew out of LAX in route to KC in '01. There was a "Arabic looking" gentleman on the flight that had everyone on edge. He had a creepy smile on his face the entire flight and never spoke a word to anyone...just smiled. I thought for sure he was going to go all jihad on our asses.

Jesus, man. This is one sad side-effect of 9/11. It's cool though, I once felt nervous when I encountered an Asian on the Virginia Tech campus.

The worst one I was ever on was from St. Louis to KC on old Tightwad Air (TWA). My boss and I had been in an 3 day company-wide meeting and were about to return home when storms came up south of St. Louis. Lucky for us, we got away on time and were in the front, so we ordered a couple beers apiece and settled in for a quick flight home. We hadn't been in the air very long and it got rough enough the flight attendants had to take their seats. Lucky for us, we both had 2 Buds, so we were groovy. My boss didn't like to fly so he had finished his first one and just had opened his second when we must have been hit by lightning. Big bump, the cabin went dark, and we dropped hard enough to send his beer flying. I think there are still claw marks on the bottom of the overhead. From then until the time I left and moved to another job, we always drove to St. Louis and most of the time to Dallas.

Afterwards the guy I was with was talking to the pilot and he said the ATC screwed up and had him descend into the jet wash of a 747 - which evidently was akin to running into a brick wall.
I had the same experience between Portland and Seattle...Not a fun flight what's so ever....

My dad belonged to an air guard flying club that bought a single engine plane from someplace in Wisconsin. He went to pick it up and when flying home one of the engine cowling closures broke and the wind caused it to tip up to wear it was rubbing on the propeller. He set it down as quick as he could.
