I am really afraid of terrorist attack and bomb exploding in an airplane.
Written by Capt Lim

Dear Capt Lim,

I am flying in one week's time and I am really afraid of a terrorist attack, i.e. a bomb exploding inside the airplane. What happens to the plane if a bomb explodes? Also, most importantly, what happens to the passengers? Would you be aware of what is happening and do you get sucked out of the plane?

I have read that cargoes on planes are not screened. Do all passenger flights carry cargo and what is the ratio of cargo to luggage?

Thank you,

Cheryl

 
A compliment from a musician with a fear of flying (R)

Dear Sir,

I have written to you about a month ago and I did enjoy all your answers. This time, I am not writing to ask any questions. This is just a 'thank you' email. I think I am speaking for those thousands of visitors whom you have helped.

I will tell you a little about myself and my connection to aviation. I am a musician, currently studying in a university. I have a horrible fear of flying since the age of 5. I do fly when I have to, which is basically 3 to 4 times a year but I am scared to death about a month before each flight. My fear increases on the days before the flight and it gets to a point during the flight, when every little sound, movements or bumps made me felt as though it was the end of my life. Once we flew into turbulence, I was quite sure the pilot wasn't telling us anything in order to keep us calm. Every time after take off or when the airplane descents sharply, (I later found out this to be totally normal), I imagine myself going to be drowned in the sea.

 
Flying without fear (R) - a repost.

Introduction

The September 11th attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon in the US had great implications. It not only caused more people to be fearful of flying but it also shook the world's economy and caused the airlines industry to go into a slump. Many reputable airlines suffered, triggering bankruptcies in Sabena in Belgium, Swiss Air in Switzerland and Ansett Airlines in Australia. More than 100,000 people in the USA lost their jobs in the airlines related business.

Many people who have expressed their fear of flying are well founded. I hope I can help to convince the people at large that flying is still safe. The September 11th tragedy will not stop me from flying an aircraft as a pilot nor as a passenger. In fact this has me even more determined to explain and to reassure everyone to come back to flying. It is easier said than done I suppose. How can I explain to people effectively the fear of flying and to convince them how safe it is to fly again? Well, my mind tells me that it will not be easy in the aftermath of the September 11th attack. I have to write something more about it...

 
What are the different categories of thunderstorm?

Hi Capt Lim,

Can you tell me the different category of thunderstorm?

Thank you.

Senoque.

Hi Senoque,

There are various categories of typhoons and turbulence but I have not come across a well defined category of thunderstorm other than whether it was "strong" or "severe".

 
What are your views on the Boeing 747 crash on take off in Belgium?

Hi Captain Lim,

What are your views on the Boeing 747 cargo plane crash (broke into two) on take off in Belgium?

Mike Hodson

Hi Mike,

Even though the reason for the crash is unknown, I can only say that it was probably a case of a rejected take off arising from a technical problem that turned almost disastrous.
