When I was young, my parents and I often slept over at my grandpa's house; just something fun to do. His house at that time was very close to an airport, and planes often flew low overhead.
Around the time of one of our first sleepovers, I had just heard the story of Moses and the plagues at Sunday school. Specifically, we had read the story where the Angel of Death passed over Egypt, and killed the firstborn in any house that did not have lamb's blood over the door.
I was lying in bed at Grandpa's house that night. It was an especially busy nght for air traffic. I was convinced that the roaring noise I was hearing (plane engines) was the Angel of Death flying over us.
No one in the house got much sleep that night, as I was awake crying in terror that the Angel of Death was going to kill me.
Well, as we see traffic lights, and street signs i thought they had some that go REALLY high for plane drivers. I thought that whenever you fly over a different country there would be a sign saying Australia, America, Portugal etc.
When I was a kid I used to believe that when you used the toilet on an airplane, a little hatch would open up when you flushed, and the contents would just drop to the earth. Whenever a plane flew overhead I'd run under a tree to keep from getting sploshed.
I used to think that when i went abroad on a flight that the destination was in the sky because i had to fly to it haha
i used to be scared of flushing the toilet in public places because i thought it would suck me up, also the same in aeroplanes
I flew in a plane when I was 8 or so, and was talking to a lady about turbulence because I was afraid that the wings would rip off. She told me that it was the only thing keeping us up. I was then terrified that the turbulence would stop and we'd all fall.
I used to believe that when you flushed on an airplane, it would land on the people below.
My friend's sister used to think the auto pilot on a plane was an inflatable man like the one in Airplane!
When I was little my Mom asked me
"How do you get on a plane?" and I simply replied "Jump up" Thats how I really thought you would get on a plane
When I was about 8 I thought I had come up with a life saving idea. I couldn't understand why when an airplane was going down the people didn't jump out the door right before it hit. I figured anyone can survive a 5 foot jump!
when i was growing up a freind of mine told her little brother that airplanes were made of very hard choclate and if you were hungry you could eat the seats he belived this until he was 13 when he actually got on a plane.
Ever since I was 2. I've been on a plane ride every year and moved houses every year as well. So one year we didn't do it. I though "We had bought them all"
I used to believe that when I saw the smoke trails from jets it meant that it was someone's birthday that day. I seemed possible since every time I was one it just happend to be someones birthday that I knew of. Perhaps becasue I was only paying attnetion when it was someones B-day. It never occured to me that thousands of people are born every day thus share the same B-day.
when i was little i used to think that the airplains that would fly over my house would come down and capture me(my dad told me that he saw me duck and run across the yard one day!) p.s im still scared of them, and also big hawks/birds!
I used to believe that airplanes made the stops according to wherever separate people wanted to go. It would make multiple stops for each person. I always wondered why my family got to go to their stop first!
I used to believe that airplanes would land in your yard and pick you up.
When i was younger i used to believe that when an airplane toilet flushed, it ejected the... waste... directly under the plane, hence the unbelieveable noise. Coming with this belief, i believed that if you sat on the toilet while you flushed, you could fall out through the toilet pipe. For these reasons, i always preferred to go to the toilet while we were flying over either the ocean or some unpopulated paddocks.
Only years later did i actually see sense that the airlines would not be allowed to do this. but that diddnt mean that i hated the noise any less.
i thought that the phrase "jet lag" was actually "jet leg" until i was 17...
I used to believe that all commercial passenger planes carried missles and bombs just in case they got into some trouble they could fight thier way out.
my dad told me that corn fields were grown from the airplanes... when they were done with the flight they would release all the poop from the plane's bathroom.. :( i didn't eat corn for a long time.
