Do you love the feeling of taking off the ground in a plane? or does that part scare you? what about when you land?
Which is more scary for you? Do you prefer the feeling better when you take of or when you land?
It's amazing how you can feel your being taken off the ground when the plane takes of; I like that feeling better.

I love takeoff!!! When the plane makes that final turn onto the runway and the engines kick in at full throttle, it's just so awesome!! And the last seconds just before take off is the best, when the plane is moving at the fastest possible speed to still be on the ground.

When I went skydiving a month ago, I was actually disappointed, because in the small plane, take off was so quick. We were off the ground in just a few seconds.

I live for that burst of acceleration upon take-off.:) Not so big on landing.:(

Skydiving must be the greatest rip in the word! :o

I don't fly. It isn't that I'm scared of it (well, maybe a little but it wouldn't stop me), it's that I've never had good reason to, never had any place to go that was best reached that way.

You know, this past Labor Day weekend I was able to fly out to Nebraska to visit with some friends of mine and it was the first time for me flying ever. I admit I was scared but I did well. I had 3 plane rides there and 3 back home and loved every minute of it! My favorite part was taking off and landing. Taking off was really neat how the plane got faster and faster and then landing was just cool!!

Nothing like take off. Many years ago when I was in the Navy I was part of a small detachment that had to be flown off the aircraft carrier USS Lexington.
We were put into a small mail plane and shot off one of the steam catapults on the ship. Now THAT was a take off!:thumbsup:
