I got in a plane for my first time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was the worst feeling in the WORLD!!!!

Today,A friend of mine called me to tell me that for 20 bucks I could ride in a plane at our local airport which is a super tiny airport.
I have never been in a plane so I jumped at the chance and also the money was going toward our local soup kitchen so anything to help out this crummy town.
 My husband went to the air port with me and we waited for our turn to get in the very tiny 3 passenger plane. The ones above are not the plane I rode in,the first one in the picture was a world war two plane they did tricks in.The second plane was actually bigger than the plane I got into.
 So,this three passenger plane comes up.A friend of mine gets in the front,me and the hubby get in the back.I was so excited UNTIL........

 We took off down the road and it was fine but when that plane went into the air I felt so sick,I knew it was gonna be very bad for me.I never knew such a small plane would make you sick with all the turbulance and the loud sounds!!!MY ears stopped up,and I had to keep swallowing to keep from barfing.It seemed to last forever!!!The husband and I held hands and we both almost tossed our cookies! I even told the pilot I was ill and he thought it would be cute to turn the thing side ways so it flew on one wing!!!!!!!!!!!AHHHHHHHHH!!
 I made it out without puking but I have been sick ever since.
I DID IT! I flew!! Next time,I am gonna fly in a real plane.

sounds like you survived the flight! honestly small planes are the worst, I remember my first small plane flight, when we were in the air, I asked about the parachute, the pilot laughed and said I would never have time to use

Sorry about the getting sick part!

Small planes are NOTHING like big planes - so if you survived that, a big plane should be no problem!

I'm one of the weirdos who has a blast in a little plane though! :)
