Up in the air


I’ve always been amazed that we as humans have learned how to get multi-ton machines up in the air. Yes, I know that it has to do with physics and science, but it still feels like a miracle. Now, if I could only get rid of my fear uneasiness of turbulence. Even the flight lessons didn’t really clear that up.

One thought on “Up in the air

  1. The only thing more amazing are the cargo aircraft, with the immense mass that they can transport.
    The largest cargo aircraft in the world is a humongous Russian cargo transport aircraft. The first time I saw that specific aircraft, I wondered that it didn’t run out of fuel just taking off.

    Turbulence rarely has bothered me, largely because as soon as we’re at altitude, I’m out like a light. Always.
