The fear of flying is not all that irrational as one might think. Although travelling can be fun, the idea of being in an enclosed setting up in the air is pretty terrifying. Who knows what might happen when you’re in the sky.
Air turbulences can make anyone nervous and panic especially if it’s really bad. One student shared his terrifying flight experience when he was on a plane from Langkawi to Kuala Lumpur.
Mohammad Idzaudin Abdul Razak, a student from Multimedia University (MMU) recalled the terrifying moment when he was on a flight back to Kuala Lumpur from his holiday in Langkawi. He described the plane he was on was topsy-turvy when it was experiencing air turbulence.
“I was supposed to get on the flight at 7pm but it was delayed to 8pm. At first when we took off, the flight was fine but then once we reached Ipoh, I noticed on the map on screen that the plane was going in circles,” he said. Idzaudin felt strange that the flight was basically not moving or “on hold” in the sky as he described it. They were stuck in the sky in Ipoh for 40 minutes.
Since there were no announcements made and no one seemed to be panicking, he tried to stay calm. As Idzaudin was waiting for his turn to use the restroom, he felt the plane experiencing severe air turbulence. “The flight attendants told us to sit on the floor. That’s when I started to panic. There was a little girl right beside me but thankfully another passenger held on to her.”
Hajat nak membuang tak tercapai 😂
Idzaudin recorded the terrifying moment and posted it on TikTok last month where it then gained 940.4k views, 35.6k likes and 1.1k comments. In the video, we can see exactly how he described the situation. We could also hear an announcement being made while Idzaudin, the little girl and a few cabin crew were on the floor holding on to their lives.
Thankfully, the plane landed safely in Johor and waited for the storm to pass. Once it was safe enough, the plane took off again to its original destination. “Alhamdulillah we reached KL safely even though it was quite late,” said Izaudin. He also shared what happened on that particular day was something he will never forget as it was a reminder for him that death can come at any time.
