What were your feelings when you were the first time on an aeroplane. Were you Afraid or you became very very bold at that time and faced the difficulty the firsst time you travelled by plane, boldly. I was quite young when I travelled by Plane and I was not exactly afraid but I must say when the plane moved in the downward direction tears would nearly floot out of my eye's. Then I would remember His got the whole world in his hands His got the whole wide world in his hands His got the whole world. :D

I've never been a plane before so I really can't say how I'd feel.. But I think I'd be scared thats for sure.. I think I'd have bad thoughts as well and when I got off the plane I'd be happy I landed and maybe just maybe I'd get back on if all went well on the first plane ride!

Maybe some day I will be brave enough to get on one and go some where I've always wanted to go, but right now I just can't afford such things mainly plane tickets some are expensive and to say if I were to go to like France where I would love to go it might cost me alot.. Who knows though!

as to me,it's an exciting experience.to be honest,i wasn't afraid at all. when i sat on my place,i looked around and watched out of the windowe to appreciate the beatuiful view of the sky.unluckily,it was nealy night,so the time of viewing the sky is limited.even than,i take advantage of the time.of course,the rest time was so boring.i just scaned some magzine and had dinner. all in all,whether ittook off or landed,i didn't feel any afriad at all. i really want to have another such experience,but it would better in day.

I was not afraid when I was travelling in the plane for the first time. But I was more excited and eager when I was about to travel in air for the fight time in my life. My first travel in air for my business purposes, which I had to travel to a different country. It was a great experience for me.

Yes. I was scared as well as exited. There was a mixed feeling. I will never forget my first time travel by flight. It was really a new experience for me. Scared but wonderful experience.

Hello! I was 10 years old when I first travelled by plane. I had been nagging my parents for ages to go on holiday where a plane was involved. I was very excited but its hard looking back to work out whether I was excited about the plane journey or just the exotic location that we were travelling to. Living in the south of the UK I had been abroad many times to France and even to Scandinavia but going by plane meant going further abroad so I was very excited. I don't remember being scared but I do remember feeling uncomfortable. I can remember being scared the second time I went on a flight (the first long haul flight I'd been on to the states. The feeling of fear neaver really left me for 20 years but I am fine with flying now!

No. The first time I flew all by myself I was five years old. Thirty years laster I still remember it. I love to fly and travel. I still have the unaccompanied minor tag from the airline. I flew on Piedmont Airlines (no longer in business) from North Carolina where I was staying with relatives back to my home in Maryland.

On my first time on board I am very happy cause that is the first time I do it. hehehe... what an excited moment it is and I never afraid what it is. But after few times I am afraid to get a flight cause I have a bad expirenced ob board. i remembered in 1995 when I was on the way to Japan from Kuala Lumpur. The weather is very bad after reach Philipines. I've experienced air pocket cause sudenly the flight when down immediately cause of the bad weather and the stewardess suddenly sit down. After that I very seldom take flight unless I'm very confidance the journey.

I actually enjoyed my first flight which was long about 18hours from Canada to India. Although when the plane is traveling in a downward position and about to land this can be very painful as a young child but does not last very long. However the fear of traveling in a plane has just been increased because of all those hijackings,teorrist attacks the worlds just gone courrupt I dont enjoy traveling by plane anymore because of this fear.

My brother and I had been travelling on planes since we have been children. We love planes and we have never been scared to fly. We were raised to love flying.
