Just got back from Newcastle and even though it was a 70 minute flight, the last 30 mins of it was sheer terror for me. Looking back on that now I've had a cup of tea, it's kind of embarassing in a way as there were quiet tears from me and then a quick excuse to run to the bathroom to be ill. Since the Japan flight I was kiiiind of hoping it would be okay since it was a short hop, but ouch I think that one set me back.
We were unfortunate to encounter bad weather, heavy rain, strong winds and low cloud cover for Cork. Which, in all honesty, is kind of normal for that airport. It's 600ft above sea level and I swear on everything it has it's own darned weather system. Needless to say the descenet wasn't just bumpy, it was enough to make the bags fall out of overhead compartments. I think when we did land I had to literally prise myself off of the seat in front of me.
I'll still be flying though. I get the feeling lack of sleep and only having 2 days home after Japan before having another flight also contributed, but it looks like more homework for me.
Captain, do you know if there are any of the help courses like the ones that you do, but based in Ireland? I know Aer Lingus used to do one in Cork but they no longer do it. It would be good to know if there are any reputable ones you know of, since I et the feeling flying out to have a flying course would just set me back on anything I learned during it.
Anyway, good luck on your flights guys. No matter how much mine bounced, which still makes me cringe, we still landed and I'm still sat at home with a cuppa. ♥
