One thing you may not know about me is that I’m pretty terrified of flying. I was in a minor plane incident as a teenager. I was on a return flight with my family from my first time on vacation in the United States. A few hours off the coast of Spain, our plane started falling out of nowhere. It felt like the plane was dragging us down with it and lasted way longer than any turbulence I had ever felt.
Once we hit air again and the plane stopped falling, one of the stewards went on the intercom and yelled at people to get back in their seats. Everyone was screaming and panicking, and later we found out some of the stewards and stewardesses had been moderately hurt during the fall. We were able to continue to Milan relatively normally, though a few of the injured flight attendants had to be taken away from the plane in ambulances once we touched down. Needless to say I’m a little anxious about flying nowadays – I’m very picky about airlines and typically medicate to make sure I’m not in a terror.
