what would you do. i had this discussion with my friends last night. i think i'd die of a heart attach. i'd be pannicking and so scared and crying. my friend thinks he'd be calm cause he knows there is nothing he can do. i don't beleive anyone can be calm in that situation. what do you think and what would you do?

I think I would be so incredibly scared that I would't be able to think clearly. If my fiance was there, too, I would probably hug him and hold his hand while was I crying and praying. I am pretty sure that I would not be able to remain calm in situation like that, it is hard to imagine my own reaction, but I am sure that the fear would be really intense. I hope I will never find out how I react in that situation and that it will remain a hypothetical question.

Wow, after the what happened this past week, I don't want to really think about it. I was never afraid to fly. My sister on the other hand gets neurotic. I should say her comment wasn't the flying part thst worried her, it was the crashing to the ground part. Recently on a couple flights I have found myself getting a little nervous, especially when taking off. So, in mind mind I force myself to calm down and say at this point there is nothing I can do and whatever will be, will be. So, I would probably be calm and try to make my peace with whats about to happen.

a plane crashing huh? we'll your friend is right, at that height! certainly there's nothing else that you can do but to stay in your seat and just pray and thank God that you had a good life hahaha...not unless there's ample of supply of parachutes and with the knowledge on what distance you should get out of the plane then you'll be safe. chances of it 1 is to 100
