I know I may be violating a.net ettiquette by starting a topic already discussed but I'm going to take a chance. Also, I posted this topic here because I believe this situation is best helped along by aviation professionals and "techies".
I had a conversation with a co-worker who is going to the carribean (Bermuda or Bahamas, not sure) soon but is nervous. She's about in her early to mid twenties or so and had never flown commercially. I explained to her that planes do not just fall out of the sky, how lift "works" using the Bernoulli effect, and that aviation is highly regulated. This seemed to help but she's still a bit nervous.
Since my knowledge of aviation is somewhat limited, I told Miranda about www.airliners.net and that maybe those with more knowledge and experience than I could explain it better.
Any comments and help would be appreciated .
Thanks very much and good day to all
