Earlier today several fellow airline passengers and I were discussing travel. They mentioned how they hated to fly out of the regional aeroport in town since the only flights available in or out are on small prop planes. Besides being a noisy, bumpy and cramped (for somebody of my height) ride the flights don't really bother me.

They of course mentioned how they don't feel as safe and sound in the prop plane as they do in the larger regional jets. They are of course the same guys that squeal like three year old girls every time a little turbulence is encountered.

I tried to offer comfort and words of wisdom to ease their minds. I've explained that time to go it's time to go.

It seems to help, until I wished them well and hoped that the bell doesn't ring for the pilot midflight.

I have taken one round trip flight in my life, and both ways we flew through storms and turbulence. Did I mention that I have only taken one round trip flight? Or that I would never ever ride in a little prop plane? blech.

I like riding in prop planes... it's much like riding on a wooden rollercoaster. It has it's ups and downs, by the time you get to the end it feels like your innards have been rearranged.
