I'm sat in termial (Why call them TERMIAL!) 4 waiting for the first leg of my flight to India and I'm not a happy bunny.

Frankly, it scares the living poo poo out of me! Literally, as any gentleman using the gate 6 toilet would surely testify.

To make matters worse this will be my first flight without valium in more than 10 years! Had to see a temp doctor and he pain refused to give me any!! Even seeing that my doctor had, once a year, every year! S.O.B! Knew it was a bad idea to have a quick pint with my brother before seeing him

Can't help looking around at my fellow passengers to see if they look like they're in need of a lot of virgins.

Cricky I need a ciggarette.

Anyone else suffer the fear?

I love being in a plane. I do not love the fact that I have to pay for drinks now.

My way of thinking when it comes to flights has always been; "I'm effing flying!" If anything goes wrong after that, well, at least I was flying.

Your temp Dr. screwed you there. What doc doesn't hand out 6-packs of Vals like candy?

Good luck with the rest of your flight. I have to assume it REALLY sucks for people that aren't comfortable on planes.

I have a slight fear of flying. Thinking about taking a flight to New Zealand from eastern USA. Not too thrilled about the idea... I see myself chanting on the airplane, "1 in a million man, 1 in a million..."

I'm not afraid of terrorists being on the plane though lol.

Don't worry about it. If I didn't cash in some of my freq flier miles for free flights, I'd be well over 300k and still have over 100k.

Don't worry about it, it's out of your control.... just like your opps actions at a poker table. Sit back, relax and on a long flight, try to get some sleep (although that last one don't work for me, because I can't ever sleep on a plane).

Dramamine works like Valium for me. Something I probably wouldn't have known if I didn't get motion sickness.
Not nearly as strong, but it puts me out every time, and no scrip necessary. You can get it right there in the airport usually.

Just don't get the non-drowsy kind.

Gravoll can make you sleepy.

Have your mp3 player with all your favorite music...Might help pass the time.

Perhaps some humour...

Real writeups in Air Force "781" Aircraft Maintenance Forms, and the "innovative" solutions of Air Force aircraft maintenance technicians:

Problem: "Left inside main tire almost needs replacement."
Solution: "Almost replaced left inside main tire."

Problem: "Test flight OK, except autoland very rough."
Solution: "Autoland not installed on this aircraft."

Problem: "The autopilot doesn't."
Signed off: "IT DOES NOW."

Problem: "Something loose in cockpit."
Solution: "Something tightened in cockpit."

Problem: "Evidence of hydraulic leak on right main landing gear."
Solution: "Evidence removed."

Problem: "Number three engine missing."
Solution: "Engine found on right wing after brief search."

Problem: "DME volume unbelievably loud."
Solution: "Volume set to more believable level."

Problem: Dead bugs on windshield.
Solution: Live bugs on order.

Problem: Autopilot in altitude hold mode produces a 200 fpm descent.
Solution: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

Problem: IFF inoperative.
Solution: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.

Problem: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
Solution: That's what they're there for.

As candidates for Undergraduate Pilot Training, you will be required to memorize the following:
Rules Of The Air

Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.

If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.

Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.

It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up there wishing you were down here.

The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.

A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great' landing is one after which they can use the plane again.

Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of
arrival. Large angle of arrival, small probability of survival and vice versa.

Never let an aircraft take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.

Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction. Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.

Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you've made.

Goog luck
