The most dangerous part of a plane flight is supposedly the taking off and landing.

Does this bother you?
Do you get nervous when the plane takes off or lands?

Not particularly bothered by this unless the plane is headed straight for me.

I hate take off.!!

It rates as one of my most scary experiences.

Landing is fine, I really have no problem with that.
I'm super anxious at both times, because the risk level seems much higher.
Absolutely! Just imagine how many moments of great stress did I go though working as a flight stewardess! Every take off and every landing ( mind you, there were many) I held on to the sides of my seat & prayed! But I loved flying:-)
If SO scary for you why continue in the job?

How long were you a flight stewardess for, Sharmila?

Love every aspect of flying! Nothing worries me at all about it.
Best take-off I've EVER had was from Essendon in a Lockheed Electra. Got to end of runway. Those fabulous Allison prop-jets were revved to maximum, brake let off & we went into the pale blue yonder at a very rapid rate!
The 'Leckies' we're just beautiful to fly in. Same flight times inter-capital as the jets.

Woooooooohoooooooooooooooo!!! YEAH . . . .!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, neither bother me exactly, but they do bother my stomach. As soon as my ears pop on take off my stomach freaks out. Luckily I have found that allergy pills like Reactine help immensely. I don't know why, but they do.
I am also very anxious but mostly when it takes off and not quite so bad on landing.

Landing is mixed a little with the relief that it's almost over - it goes equally bad on landing (in the stats) but mentally you think you have a better shot at getting out of it alive, and you are about to get off the plane...(I'm the same, so I've thought about this)
Not bothered at all. If I had to decide, I would say when it takes off as anything can happen from there - even though the 100's of flights I have taken in the last 7 years have landed safely. Nothing to worry about despite that MH370 incident...
Yep, and the whole time it's in the air - but I love travel, so what are you going to do?
I hate flying but there's no other way to go. When we were returning from a trip flying into Perth airport with cross-winds the plane was bouncing up and down and most of the passengers were looking pretty frazzled, my then 8 year old son went "whee - it's like a roller coaster" which broke the ice and all the passengers laughed. I always look at the flight attendants, and if they look worried then I am too (that's never happened). I wish the pilots would warn people all the time when there's turbulence.
Can't pre-warn re: turbulence, as it's air drafts, which CANNOT be seen by pilot or by instrument readings!

Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Either one. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! My other half is a wuss - he nearly breaks my hand squeezing it so tight. Bahahaha.

Another time, had been 'invited' on a 'Test Flight', on an Ansett Boeing 747.

It only had 200 POB, & no luggage.
I was allocated First Class! Very snazzy!

At take-off, with relatively little weight, aircraft went straight up, 'forcing' me against seat!
Wow! What an experience!

Love landing whilst on a 747! Beautiful aircraft!
No, it doesn't worry me. I've heard on the tv once or twice, that you have more change of dying in a car accident, than dying while flying! I told my mother once, that I was crying to my self while flying over the Grand Canyon in a tiny plane, & she replied: "Oh well. if it comes down, it comes down" (1 of those little planes over the GC did in fact come down a month later, & 4 the people on board died,) but I haven't heard of any other accidents since then, over the GC, & hundreds of those little planes go up over the GC every week. Anyway...I'm WAY of the main point here, as usual!
by Miro
No, I love it when a plane takes off or lands,for me I think it's the beast part.
No way! LOVE the feeling of being pushed back in the seat as you take off! And I always 'score' the landing - would love to hold up a score card like they do in Olympic sports... 8.5; 9.6 etc. :)
