Answer for question 4506.

Do you enjoy traveling by airplane? Why or why not? What's the longest uninterrupted flight you've been on, and what did you do to pass the time?
I'm scared of heights. Get me on a chair, I'm nervous; on a ladder and I'm really nervous. So it was with some trepidation and a lot of curiosity that I took my first flight 15 or 20 years ago.

More than a little to my surprise, and despite being on a small (70-seat) airplane flying in inclement weather and suffering enough turbulence for the pilot to apologize at the end of the flight, I loved it.

And still do. I thrill to the power of take-off, and love staring out at the cloudscapes. And also, getting where I'm going really fast.
