I don’t have a fear of flying. I have a fear of crashing.
I’m not trying to be funny. That perfectly describes my feelings about being in the air.
I love the fact that we can be ABOVE the clouds looking down on the earth…something that generations of mankind could only dream about. I also love the fact that it’s so easy and convenient and sometimes cheap.
The part I don’t like is biting my nails the entire time. Imagine the entire ride staring at the wing, praying that whoever needed to turn a bolt or tighten a screw, did just that. That’s me.
Anyway… Flying is statistically safer than driving. I get it. But still… video like this is terrifying.
Terrifying video shows an engine of United Airlines flight 328 on fire.
