Looking down at clouds is so cool. Thank you Orville and Wilbur!

I actually hate flying for many of the same reasons listed already. I also suffer from claustrophobia which means I am prone to anxiety attacks from time to time (oh joy!), usually on smaller commuter planes - that certainly doesn't help things. Unfortunately, flying is a necessary evil if I want to get out and see the world and have new experiences, which I have and do as often as possible. I just pull up my big girl pants and suck it up.

Oh, and alcohol. Yeah. Booze always seems to help me get through it 3601

Love it! Especially in an open cockpit plane. Also I love parasailing, hang gliding, and bungee jumping.

I have written a new poem. It is called 'Long Twisty Woman.'

Also, if you wish, check out my co-authored a story with the wonderful DanielleX. It is called 'Focus on Sex.'

I hate to fly. It seems like I have no control of what's going to happen. At least in a car I can try to avoid a accident in a plane if something goes wrong we are screwed.

Love flying! Favorite part is taking in the destination city from above, whether it's day or night (both are beautiful), especially when approaching the home city with that bird's eye view

Well at this point, after a few million miles, I'm pretty jaded about the time on the plane. That part I can do without. Unless of course I'm in first class with a very adventurous young lady on a 13 hour flight to London and we can get up to some mischief. I like landing. I always like arriving in a city and knowing there will be great things to discover. Even after all the times I have been to London, New York or Beijing I can always find new things to discover. That's the fun part of flying.

To me it's just a mode of transportation, so I don't like, or dislike, as long as it gets me where i'm goin, i don't care!

I don't mind the up in the clouds bit which can be boring but do feel - not exactly terrified but uncomfortable during landing and takeoffs as I know they are the most dangerous moments. Also I find it ironic that they go on about putting on a life jacket as if most flights are over the sea most of the time which of course is not the case (this is a placebo effect - I have also seen films of what happens inside a plane when it crashes and crouching down in your seat is useless as seats can actually fly through the air on impact.) I have to suppress an evil urge to ask where the parachutes are stored as I know that won't ever happen as it's been researched and not implemented because it would be too expensive. The most comforting thought is that statistically it's still safer than crossing the road. I also find all those queues for explosive checks totally irritating and would rather take the chance of some lunatic blowing up the plane - I notice they don't do these checks for train journeys despite the fact that the last incident I can recall was setting off explosives on a train in Spain using a mobile phone. I suspect they only check planes because its psychological - people are nervous about flying anyway and there would be less passengers without such checks and therefore loss of the big motive - money.

I love flying. Take off and landing has to be my favourite. I just love the fact that it saves on travel time.

I love to fly. HATE flying in planes. It's a crowded bus with wings and an occasional beverage.

I'm not really one for flying...the actual being up in the air part is ok. The take-offs and landings always frighten me, though. I also have a bit of claustrophobia, so long flights with no stops can make me a little scared. And after having flown with a couple of different airlines, I've come to know which ones are easier to deal with, which makes the flying experience a touch more enjoyable.

Flying gives me a super buzz,as i know im travelling again & thats 1 of my top passions.apart from joining the"Mile High Clua"flying fro Jakarta to Sydney,one other standout was,from Manilla 2 Hong Khong through an electrical storm &going into the cockpit on a Freddy Laker Lon to JFK & viewing a St Ellmers fire on the cockpit window & watch the pilot put his fingers on it & slide it away.

Being a passenger on a flight is rather indifferent to me. Don't hate, like or fear it. It's a means to a destination. The biggest drag is checking in, going through airport security, etc.

Flying in an open cockpit as Buz said and performing some daring maneuvers, now that would be quite exciting! Something I would love to try in the future.

I love to travel and living on an island, that means getting on a plane. I am always nervous until I actually get on the plane, then I relax and enjoy the flight! I also love to drive! call me crazy, but I am always looking for an excuse to get into my car and go...

Flying is amazing. More for the fact that I build similar engines to the ones in the planes. And the concept of speed is unreal. Big kid here!

I've flown quite a bit over the couple decades. I love the view, I love being up in the air. However, commercial air travel has become less and less enjoyable over time between security hassles on the ground and declining service and crowding on the planes themselves. Would love to have a private plane so that I could really enjoy flying, instead of dealing with the annoyances. Would need a lot more money than I have to do that, though (esp. since my crappy eyesight and coordination mean I'd probably have to hire a pilot rather than get a license myself).
