Worst plane ride?

I used to be petrified of flying, but as I now fly pretty regular, I sort of cope with it a bit better. However my last flight with monarch was pretty scary, (I've talked about it in an earlier post!), but when I got home, and told people my story, they were like;- "Oh thats nothing, this happened to me........!"

I just wondered if anyone has any terrifying tales to tell, when they've had a bad take-off, flight, landing etc just to see how bad things can sometimes get?

WV - yes, we were emigrating or, in my case, being dragged kicking and screaming to Australia. Been here nearly 40 years now and wouldn't go back.

Slightly off topic, but the ship I was booked on to do an Antarctic cruise in January has just sunk - am I jinxed?

Well, I'm wondering about a jinx and if you should be a good little Numbat and stay in your hollow log and not travel_______but there is no fun in that is there.

I'm off to open a good red and watch the election results.

Well Numbat scores top points, but Mr Cellophane gets Highly Commended for his freudian slip "reverse trust ".
