That the white stuff coming out of aeroplanes meant that someone on the plane had just got married.

I used to think that aeroplane engines are hugh rocket launchers. [similar to the jet fighters but much much bigger]

I used to be scared of airplanes because I thought that when we got to the destination,we had to parachute out. This persisted until I was seven, when I went to the Yucatan, when my parents calmed my fears. Looking back, now I think it would be cool to jump out of the Airplane.

When I was little, my grandfather told me that the trails of condensation behind jets were people being thrown out of the plane because it was too heavy!

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.
