i saw the fighter jet today near manchester airport...just 2 weeks ago i flew back from doha on an Qatar a330 (like the one today..maybe the same one...maybe not)...as i saw the jet i wondered why it was in civilian airspace such as MAN ....then as i was driving home i saw a lot of emergency vehicles..and naturally thought the worst.

i got home and put on the news and saw it was a hoax....WHAT THE **** could be in somebodies mind to do that.....I would have proper cacked myself if i'd seen a fighter jet escorting us in!!!

once again we focus on the good....nobody was hurt....there was most probably never a chance of a threat from a security perspective but they did the right thing taking it seriously.

i really hope they make a very serious example of him and lock him up to deter other from making ridiculous but very scary threats.

oh...and dont worry...no relapse for me....i'm still not scared of flying!!!!

How have you managed to no longer be scared of flying ? Was you bad before ?

Good points


Hi Samantha, well yes i was a very fearful flyer....and its simply a case of having to fly a lot for my job...so i decided not to be scared anymore and to embrace the exciting world i now lived in!!

here helped...i surrounded myself with knowledge as asked stupid questions which were always answered....once you fly a lot you realise everything is routine and every flight is the same....dont get me wrong.....i still cant sleep on a plane....but i dont panic anymore and the more i do it the better i am!!!

ofcourse its easy for me cause i have to fly regular...if you do it once a year for a holiday then you might need more help than i do...but that why this site exists right!!

Oh turns out the guy who made the threat has been sectioned under mental health act here in the UK....
