It’s one thing to fear flying (airplanes).
It’s another thing to have been an American having experienced New York City 9/11.
But it’s another thing to be mid-air and hearing a loud explosion. Hole in the plane. Now you’re looking out closer to God in ways you never dreamed of or imagined.
Great but, now your plane is in a mid-air fight with pressure and gravity (with you and 73 other people running to the back of it after watching that gravity suck a man through that hole mid-air, sending his body into the clouds.
If there is any “good” in this (scientifically/astronomically speaking) that much gravity would kill a human being so instantly that the fear of knowing you are out there “in the clouds” won’t even be able to set in before you’re dead.
The bad thing is: This is not a movie. All this really did happen in the world… just yesterday aboard Daallo Airlines’ Airbus A321, flight D3159.
