Turbulence is fun. It's like a rollercoaster but you never know what's going to happen next.

Having said that, if I'm ever in turbulence that's intense enough for the flight attendants to look worried, I'll immediately and thoroughly poop my pants.

Mine will be "Intro" by XX. Just long enough for me to "finish" before the plane smashes into the ground.

Flying in the South on a small plane in the summer afternoon....not once, not never.

Guaranteed to dirty your pants.

I've done it many times but the worst was on some ****ty Italian-made prop plane from Montgomery to ATL on a July afternoon. As usual, ****ing massive storm clouds appeared out of no where and made the 45 minute flight feel like it was going to be my last

edit: It was an ATR-42.

CRJ 700s and E-170 seem to be 90% of the planes that fly out of GSP

I like when they apologize to you in advance.

Took off from EWR during heavy winds once..."Folks, no way around this one....this take off will be bumpy"

I hate watching planes take off from EWR when I'm driving down the Turnpike. Makes me pucker up.

I love the approach from the east on their shorter runways. plane going right above you.

EWR is also proud to be an airport where a 757 has landed on a taxiway.

Okay. This seems normal. Lets try and land anyways.

I haven't had any bad flights in recent memory... except my very last one, I sat next to a mother/daughter combo that weighed in at a combined 600lbs.

regarding turbulence, are there different kinds?

IMO there is the bumpy kind, the drop down suddenly kind, the rocking kind, and the worse- pitch, yaw and roll kind.

The 777 uses plenty of composite material.

I don't have the breakdown.

So the white part is purely imaginary? That is some f***ing engineering, right there!

For what I've read, the shell is aluminum.

Yeh after looking at the image i posted I can see how FG works on modern jets. its in non-stress / critical areas. Looks to be coverings only (nose cone, pylon covering, stabilizer edges etc).

Try flying in Colorado on a Dash-8 or CRJ or, worse yet, a B190 on a windy summer afternoon. I've had pilots announce "If you need the restroom, use it now, because you will not have a chance to get up during the flight."

I mean the little guys:

Heard by a family friend years ago up at altitude.

ATC - Air Canada XXX, how's your ride at FL310?

ACXXX - "Looks like the Capt has poked himself in the mouth with his fork twice so far, so I'd say we have some light chop"

ATC - "Alright...West Jet XXX how's your ride at FL330?

WestJet - "Well, our Capt has poked himself in the mouth 4 times now, so we are in some moderate turbulence."

ATC - "ok, United XXX whats your ride at 350?"

United - "I'm not sure, we haven't had our meals yet."
