Captain Keith's email re landing in fog

I have just read this email with extra interest because when I was flying back from Nice to Belfast a few weeks ago as we wee approaching Paris we left the clear skies an lovely aerial views behind.  It was so misty I though we were going to land at Belfast International without seeing the runway.

It is in these instances that I have found the logical explanations so valuable and helped to convince me of the safety of flying. As I read the email it triggered a memory of my standing ironing the morning I was due to fly to Leeds and I was listening to the Fear of Flying Cd's to help me travel.  I have had to take it b y degrees and not put myself under pressure such as travelling with others until I was able to do so. 

That was my first flight to Europe and travelled with a group of 17. I always pre-book a window seat and look out all the way except if I am reading or doing my crossword - all things I never could relax enough to do in flight.  It helps me to know the flight path so I know where I am flying over although the pilot doesn't always tell you!  Everything I can do to keep things normal!
