Even though flying is statistically the safest way to travel, there are a ton of different reason to hate flying. For one, it just seems unnatural for humans to be hurtling through the air in a big metal tube at hundreds of miles an hour. It’s not really something we were made for. So many things could go wrong with the aircraft while you are in the air. Mechanical malfunctions, lighting strikes and terrible turbulence are just a few of them. The people who were aboard this Singapore Airlines found out the hard way what can exactly go wrong. About 2 hours into their flight, the plane started to reesmellof gasoline. They turned around and made an emergency landing. The passengers thought the nightmare was over, but it was actually just beginning!
Holy crap! I wouldn’t have been able to sit there calmly and film this ordeal. I would have been freaking out. I really don’t mind flying, but this definitely freaks me out. The plane was actually supposed to spend a few hours flying over the Indian Ocean. It’s very fortunate the pilots realized what was happening and turned around when they did. Otherwise I feel this would have ended in a very different manner.
