eveery once in a while on a plane, i could swich seats with my sister. I thought that the reason i could saftly do this was that the plane had stopped in midair and was hovoring!
Then i was told that if a plane stopped 9n midair it wold fall out of the sky
I used to think that when you were ready to get on the plane, you would go outside and the plane would hover over the house and pick you up kinda like a taxi. The pilot would drop a big latter and you would climb on up :)
i used to believe airplanes never land and would just fly forever, i believed in this till 8-9
when i was young, i used to believe that you can go to heaven by riding on a plane..
I used to believe AIRPLANES flew becuase hundreds of bird were inside flapping their wings, and that made it go up.
When I was five, my family was going on vacation to Florida. I thought that airplanes went over several destinations without stopping, so I was afraid to get on the plane because I thought we'd have to parachute into Orlando.
When I was 3 years old i used to think planes crashed every time someone threw up because of the extra weight.So it was summer holidays and my mum booked my family tickets to go to america.So we where in the plane enjoying the ride then my sister just happened to throw up.I stood up running up and down the plane saying. "the plane gonna cwash! the plane gonna cwash!". One of the passengers shouted "put a sock in it" so I took my shoe, stripped of my sock and put in my mouth.My mum picked me up kicking and screaming and forced me into my chair until we reached america.And guess what the plane didn't cwash
I used to see the airliners high in the sky on a clear sunny day in the summer time. They were leaving a vapor trail behind. I didn't know about vapor trails. I thought that the plane was so high that it was scratching the top of the sky and leaving white marks.
I was told by my friend that the trail behind an airplane was the extra ice that they had on the flight and they threw it out the window and it froze there. He was into science and owned a telescope, so I naturally believed him because no one else I knew owned a telescope. I figured he actually saw them throwing out the ice.
I used to think that when you would go to the airport you would just sit in the seats in the waiting area and the whole airport would take off.
When I was young I was in an airplane I kept on pressing the recliner button and then suddenly we took off.I was very small then so I cried.For a long time after that I thought the recliner button was used for impatient passengers who wanted to take off early.
My father was a gunner on B-52's from my birth to age 25. At age 3 we lived in Guam, and for some reason I believed B-52's flew so they could drop cheese off at your house in your chimney or roof.
When I was little, I used to wave at the airplanes flying overhead during the day when I was outside - I believed that the people up there could see me and were probably waving back. I even believed this for a few years after taking a flight (and not seeing any little kids waving at me).
At night time, the plane lights were so mysterious to me (because I couldn't see the plane, just the lights) - I thought they were UFOs. I believed aliens were real because I saw a UFO a few times every hour while I was trying to go to sleep!
When I would see ads for "non-stop" flights on TV, I thought that meant the planes did not stop anywhere once they took off. When you got over your stop, you had to parachute to the ground. I really didn't get why this was a such a great thing. I'd rather be on a plane that was going to stop before I had to get off!
I used to believe in the plane there were birds to make it fly
I used to think that planes would turn into little chairs that flew around, only holding one person at a time, but when I got on a plane for the first time, I was so scared that all of those people would be forced onto a little chair!
i used to believe that there were highways in the sky with robots and everything so that planes woldn't crash into one another
As a kid I refused to get on a plane annoying my Mum and Dad. Eventually they asked me the problem. It was obvious to me - once the plane took off you got smaller - and I wanted to get bigger not smaller.
I didn't catch onto perspective until a few years later!
While on vicodine and a an overseas flight I was sitting next to a lady. I was in a lot of pain from a facial surgical procedure and I told her I was going to take a little nap. I was out like a light and when I awoke (4 hours later) she said she wished she had whatever it was that I was taking. Then she asked "do you see the moon out there"? I looked out the window and said "no, but I see some kind of light close to our plane". She asked where I saw the light and I pointed to it asking what or where it was coming from. She said she saw the light but didn't know what it was. I got up and took a closer look and asked if she were sure she didn't know what it was. She assurred me that she did not know. I panicked and called for the attendant. I said that there was an object flying very close to our plane and I wondered if it were a UFO. Other people started to get up and one person said "those are the landing gear lights on the wing of the plane"
Not my belief, but as a kid in pre-war New Guinea, aeroplanes were about the only way of getting around, so even the tribesmen were used to them, even if their silly white owners hadn't taught them to flap their wings properly like other birds, which they were naturally assumed to be. But as roads started to be built, and motor vehicles arrived, the locals were terrified. Anything that moved was obviously alive, and while aeroplanes had quite acceptable wings like birds, something that moved on the ground without legs must be very bad witchcraft indeed.
