I used to believe when I was younger (10 or so) I thought that aeroplanes were flying cars. I believed this because they had their lights on (not just the flashy ones), and they looked like car head lights. I pointed it out to my dad one day and said, "look, a flying car". He explained that I was wrong and why. I was so embarrassed. Yet I think that it is funny to this day.

One day we were at an air show, and my dad was explaining to me how the planes lived in hangers when they were not flying. I was intrigued how you could put something as big as a plane on a clothes hanger.

When I was 4, I used to belive that Disney World was in the clouds, because we had to take a plane to get there.

When I was a little girl, my parents' friend from England came to visit us. I asked him if it was a long drive to Canada and he said: "I flew!". I looked at him wide-eyed and asked : "Where's your wings??!" Then the adults burst out laughing and I was angry and still confused about how the crazy bird-man got to my house.

When I was younger, my grandmother used to come visit us quite frequently. So in order to pick her up, we would go to the airport, and as I watched her get off the plane, the realization hit me that if she kept arriving from planes, she must obviously live in one! So from that day onward, when I saw an airplane in the sky, I would shout "Look, it's Mama (grandmother in Chinese)!" And the thing was my brothers, who were ten years older than me, did it, too! So I believed it for a long, long, long time. It wasn't until many hundreds of times later and then my riding an airplane for myself did I realize the error of my ways.

when I was younger my mum told me that when you're on a plane the shutters have to be open during take off otherwise terrorists could target the plane, I have since developed a fear of flying and she wonders why!

I used to believe that a "round trip" ticket was where they take you up in an airplane and fly you "round and round" and then bring you home!

When I was about 7 or 8 I used to believe that there were signposts in the sky so that aeroplanes knew where they were going!!

I used to think when you went in an airplane, you would get really tiny, because when I would see them in the sky, they would be really small, from being so high in the air. The first time I got on one, I asked my mom "When are we gonna get tiny?"

I used to believe air planes ran on batteries. When I was 3, and the plane was going down to land, I shouted out, "DOES IT NEED NEW BATTERIES?!"

I used to think that airplanes were just angels who hadn't learned to become invisible yet.

I used to think that a one-way ticket meant you could never ever come back. Couldn't understand why anybody would ever buy one...

I used to believe that if you were to shine a flashlight up in the sky you could make the planes crash. I have a feeling some adult told me that so I would keep the flashlight pointed down. I believed it until I was about 22 when my boyfriend was on a camping trip with my family. I freaked out when he shined a flashlight up in the sky. I got laughed at by the entire family and still to this day they make fun of me. My boyfriend (now husband) will never let me forget it.

I used to believe that if I was to fly from one state to another I was actually flying to another globe! When I got a little older and saw maps, I thought that if you were in the air you'd actually see the lines separating each state. Luckily I've grown up since then and gotten a wee bit smarter. :)
