Last flight back home from client site was scary. Turbulence went on for about an hour, lights went off and suddenly everyone thought we were going to crash. Anyone want to share crazy flight stories?

Crash landed on a mysterious island. After finally escaping to civilization, found out our plane had been found at the bottom of the ocean with all passengers deceased

Packed like sardines into the back of a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. There’s one long bench going down either side, both filled with guys with a full combat load and then a line of guys sitting on floor down the middle. Somewhere in the rural countryside outside Baghdad.

Out of nowhere, one of the outward facing machine guns starts rocking and then the bird banks crazy hard left and dives. Meanwhile we can’t see anything. I’m sitting on the ground and can only see backwards and my view is basically just people. It’s night time and super dark and our senses are numbed from the deafening drone and whoosh whoosh whoosh of the dual rotors spinning over head and the two Lycoming T55 turboshaft engines that help push us forward at nearly 200mph. It was at that time that I thought I was going to die and I actually had time to think about it. It wasn’t a come to Jesus moment or cliche flashbacks to my childhood, just a realization that I was about to die.

But we didn’t. I didn’t. We landed at our designated LZ. Got off. Completed our mission. And for picked up 2-4 days later

After these plane crashes in recent news, I can't imagine being on a plane with horrific turbulence.

747 landing in crazy wind, at the last minute the pilots decided to abort, so full power and we went back up for a second try. Equal parts scary and exciting!!

Scary turbulence, as well. Plane dropped what probably seemed like more than it was. Everyone was looking out the window and the guy next to me starting praying.

I travel a lot internationally but that was the scariest I’ve ever been. Kids on the plane (who were of age and knew what was happening) were screaming and crying while all the grown ups got all quiet.

Late night Landing in Kiev, Ukraine- massive turbulence and cabin smoke. Talking to other passengers, apparently normal. Stayed in a hotel that has not been remodeled since the first revolution, with a shared shower and bathroom and still payed over a hundred bucks.

Not for work :) and yes, at the time it was the only ‘close to airport’ option.

Climate change is making it worse

I’m fat and fly on a CRJ200 twice a week

🐠, how do you feel at ease enjoying the luck you’ve had and the fruits of your labors? I’m 28, single, and by all accounts financially thriving - on my way to $200k+ in income for 2022 and have a ~$300k net worth. Additionally, I happen to be the only child of well-off parents.

However, I’m tortured by a slow start to my career that led me to bleed cash for years to live comfortably (no roommates, travel, going out) and the loss of 80% of my parents’ money relatively late in their lives.
