Hi, I am from Denmark (sorry for my lousy english..) and I'm new in this forum. I'm so glad that I've found it!! I have read your wise words and Watched some of the videos over and over, so that I can get "bored with" e.g. turbulence - and that actually helps!!
I am 32 years and I have inherited the fear from my mom. That's also why I've been afraid of flying in (as in really afraid!!!) almost 32 years...
This summer I'm going on a flight with my dayghter... and she can't inherit the fear - I simply can't let it happen. Thats why I this year also tried therapy.
And, now to my question: my biggest concern (at the time..)is that I have heard about airplanes that on their way get into areas without air (a kind of vaacum), and the airplane therefore falls severel meters until it gets air under the wings again...
This ,especially, does that I can't enjoy even a flight with almost any turbulense, because I don't know how the "road" will be 5 meters further away. Did that make any sense??
It's like I can't enjoy the present, and I keep thinking: oh, what will happen, what will happen: Turbulence, bird strikes, that the fly falls out of the sky et cetera et cetera.
Thank you for reading all this:)
Ps. Thank you captain Keith, for you mail about the BA-plane! It helped
me, not to freak out:)
