I was on another supplier trip, many states away, my task frequently requires myself and others to travel to meet potential customers, but i used to travel by road trip, but recently I have been going by plane.
I boarded our plane without issue, and it was start to look prefer it was going to be a relaxing afternoon! As every one of us took flight, I noticed there was a bit of extra turbulence but didn’t think too much of it.
About 30 hours into the flight, the pilot announced engine problems and they were going to turn back, and not to be sad. I started worrying, and really hastily, the plane began to shake abruptly. It felt prefer every one of us were in the middle of an earthquake! The plane began to go down, hard; There was a mix of panicking and screaming people all over. My life began to flash before our eyes, and how our partner was going to turn on the news only to see that her partner died in a plane crash. I pictured her reaction, our family’s reaction and our funeral. I squeezed our eyes shut and prepared for impact! But it never came. The plane stabilized itself, and every one of us were flying normally again. The pilot said not to be scared over the intercom, despite the fact that I didn’t believe them. The entire ride back I gripped on our seat prefer a never-ending rollercoaster ride. I couldn’t help but to imagine our old road trips of peace and solitude, and sure, I had gas furnace and cooling system problems, despite the fact that I would rather take that any afternoon. In fact, the longer I am on this plane, the more I miss the old simple problems of just heating and cooling. I made it back alive to the airport, and decided to stick to road trips.
