at the mere sight of a plane at the airport, anticipating getting on the dam thing. My next flight is next month. My fears are not completely unfounded - last few flights = Middle East = on landing badly, smashed up the "Nose Wheel ", Germany = Old propeller plane, section of Engine fell off - Rome= Leaking fuel from "Starboard" engine, Sweden= very severe Turbulence, and Sicily = the rear toilets flooded sending a "Wave" of water (I hope it was water !), travelling right down the Isle and length of the aircraft, into the "Flight Deck" and I learnt later "Shorted out some equipment at 30,000 feet " -Emergency Landing . Any good folk out there have any ideas how to keep calm, and therefore less Puffing etc - As a Musician, I have no choice but to fly, because of time factors, and now with COPD, the flying "Experience" has become horrendous, needless to say, hardly anyone wants to fly with me, they say I am jinxed - yuk! Many thanks - Vittorio.
