When i was small boy i think that there will be a conductor in the aeroplane,like in a bus.
When I was 5 and went on a plane for the first time, I kept looking for the Care Bears in the clouds. I was very dissappointed I didn't see them.
Before WWll, when there was growing air activity, I would watch the aircraft fly over and I believed that the sound of the engine was caused by the tail of the aircraft being dragged along the sky
I used to believe that the "shark mouth" nose art painted on military planes was to scare enemy pilots away.
I believed as a small child travelling on a plane that if you stood too close to the pan as the toilet flushed you would be sucked in and fall out of the hole for waste under the plane.
I thought that when you used the toilet on an aeroplane the waste came straight out of a special exit underneath and fell to the ground or into the ocean. I worried about it landing on someone.
I thought that when you were on an aeroplane and the airhostess brought out your meal that the plane had stopped moving and didn't start again until everyone had finished. Weird kid I was.
When I was told that my parents would be returning from an overseas trip with delivery to the door. I thought that meant that the airplane would be landing on the street in front of our house to let them out in front of our house.
on a clear day with a brilliant blue sky i asked my dad once why there was a scratch in the sky...i thought maybe god scratched the sky. he thought that was really sweet but explained to me that it was the contrail from an airplane. i must have been about 4 or 5.
sometimes i like to pretend that god scratched the sky.
When I was 6 I went on a plane for the first time, My dad asked about visiting the Cockpit but I refused to go because I thought It was a huge Cob web (sounds allot like cockpit) in the clouds but I wouldnt go because I thought I was gonna fall off if I saw a big spider!
Just before my friend's first journey on a plane, her brother told her that if she did a poo in the toilets, then the poo will go out of the plane and land on earth. He said to her that a few people got injured due to flying poo. She still believes in this even though she is 22!
This is one my mother actually believed...way into her forties!!
She thought that airplanes had wire hanging down from them for the telephones they had onboard!!! Needless to say she is slightly nutty my Mam!
When I was a kid I used to think that if you jumped up in a plane that the plane would carry on flying where as you would move backwards
I really thought that when an aeroplane took off it landed on the clouds. Why? Because thats where other countries were, of course.
if you shone a torch into the sky at night, an airplane would thin you were a runway and land on you
I live in the city of christchurch (New Zealand) The nearby hills are a part of what is known as Banks Peninsula, and Christchurch is in the Province of Canterbury. This part of NewZealand is very flat geographicaly and referred to as the Canterbury plains.The local weather forcast always started as follows....For Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and "the plains" until midnight tonight......My interpratation as a young child? I knew I lived in cristchurch, knew the hills were banks peninsula, and was very satisfied thinking that midnight was when "the planes" stopped flying at the airport
My Mum used to believe that an aeroplane went up into the air and waited for the world to turn around so the place they wanted to go to was beneath the plane!
I was sitting in a plane once and convinced myself that if I looked hard enough at the clouds that I would be able to see the angels playing on the clouds.
I grew up in a smaller city and had no idea what a skyscraper was (you know, the tall buildings, like in New York). I always thought that white trail the planes left in the sky were skyscrapers because it looked like they had scraped the sky!
My neighbour's 20-years-older-than-she brother had her convinced completely that when sunlight glinted off aeroplanes, that meant all of the glass windows of the plane had just burst, and the glass would fall down directly into her eyes. I thought she was daft when she solenmly told me this (I was 6 and she was 8), and I was astonished the first evening I played with her outside, a plane flew over and was caught in the light of the setting sun, glittering off its windows, and she threw herself facedown to the ground in hysterics, believing the glass was heading in her direction to blind her.
