I remember believing that clouds where the exhaust fumes from airplanes.

When I was fairly young, I had seen parts of a few movies involving commercial airplane crashes on television. This gave me the impression that most planes crashed. I was quite frightened when I found out my grandfather would be flying overseas!

When I was really quite young I was in the car with my dad driving along, when I saw a vapour trail in the sky. I asked dad what it was and I heard him say, " That's a paper trail, it comes from a plane." I imagined the people throwing paper out of the plane as it went along. When I was 15 I ended up having a debate with a boyfriend about what it was; I was 100% certain it was still called a "paper trail". How embarrassing...

My earliest memory of being on a plane was from when I was about 3 years old. I asked my mother if she would let me get out and play in the clouds. I thought they were something solid that I could walk on.

When I was 8 and about to migrate to Australia, I thought that once on the plane, i would be able to open the window and scoop some of the cloud and take it with me after I landed. Also thought the mini-cloud would be able to produce rain.

I used to believe that these big, strong men would be on each side of an airplane to push it when it takes off

When I was younger my brother told me that the white streaks of smoke that a jet leaves in the sky would kill me if they fell on my head, but only if there were two streaks of smoke. I believed him.

top belief!

When I had just turned 4, I was on my first plane flight. When I asked what the paper bags were for, my dad told me that when you're very high up in a plane, you ears pop.

He then explain that the bag was for catching your ears, so they don't float away.

I had images of all these ears popping off, and all the passengers trying to catch them!

I used to believe that when they said that you lost your luggage, that it actually fell out of the plane and landed in someones back yard. So i was always amazed when they found it.

i used to believe that the white smoke trails planes left in the sky WERE the planes. i didn't understand how they had doors or windows or how anyone traveled on them.

I was told when I younger that we were going on holiday to Ayre.
We would be going on a plane.
(I'd never been on one before)

I got really scared and confused, I thought we needed to go on a plane because it was in the "Air"
I thought the plane would go up and land on a cloud and we'd all get out. The holiday never went ahead and I believed that Aire was a place in the sky for years, and I was glad we didn't have to go in the end.

until we started to go to Spain on holiday i used to think that everyone went on holiday in a caravan like we did and that areoplanes were just too far away for me to be able to see this long line of caravans flying behind them with special wings attached.

My family has always travelled a lot, and airplane trips were fairly common but still a big deal. I'm not sure why, but I decided that airplane tickets were just about the most expensive things you could buy, costing several thousand dollars. It never occurred to me to wonder why, if they cost so much, we took so many plane flights.

i used to think that airplanes are able to break through the atmosphere and enter outer space, but one i learned more about the atmosphere, airplanes, and space ships, i finally learned of two words- "vacuum" and "airlock". i was pretty stupid.
