Re: WHY AM I SO DAMN SCARED TO FLY?

When we lived in Jamaica my Dad's friend Michael Sylvester, a Grenadian lawyer, was on some committee at UWI Mona, and had to fly to Jamaica every three months. Michael HATED flying, his fear was on steroids!

On October 6, 1976, he was flying from Barbados to Jamaica, and as usual he was a nervous wreck in the hours before the flight. To calm his nerves, he and his friends had a "few" drinks at a bar near to the airport. A few grew to a few more, and by the time he reached the airline check-in desk, he was very "calm".

Too calm apparently. He was too late, they'd closed the flight. No matter how much he remonstrated, especially being "calm" as he was, they said nope: you ain't flying today, buddy. Shit! He drove off with his friends, watching his flight disappear over the horizon.

BOOM! The bomb inside the luggage compartment went off, and the plane plummeted to the sea in a ball of flames, killing all 73 people on board. That was Cubana Airways flight 455, heading from Barbados to Kingston, then Havana. It was a terrorist act by a Miami-based (and US-supported) anti-Castro group.

So you can imagine what that did to Michael's already intense fear of flying, in future he had to be so "calm" he'd be catatonic!
