mrbenjame:I had my first flight just last month and I can imagine every bit of your explanation. I had 2 major worries.
2. The feeling when the plane loses a little altitude and then balance again. It usually takes like 1 to 3 seconds but it happened couple of times expecially during turbulence

|Re: My First Flight Experience; I Won’t Lie I Almost Peed! by mrbenjame: 9:41pm On May 05|
Make una no vex ooo..... lols. Sorry I just returned from work. It’s exactly 9pm today. I’d try to update now please.
.....................The take off.................
During the announcement I observed that there’s usually a telephone hanged between the passenger side and the cockpit where the pilots stay. It’s just a passage. So whenever a crew member wants to make an announcement he or she goes there to pick the telephone to speak to the whole crowd ( lols. Permit me to use that word. Lols. Abi no be cruise we Dey catch? ).
After the pilot finished his announcement. the sound of the plane increased again. This was when I concluded that we were set to fly finally. The plane noise sweet sha!
The plane started moving and the whole crew members went to seat down. I observed that they were mostly seating at the back back while some stayed in front.
At the time the plane started moving I just felt I was in a luxurious bus ( you know all this heavy and lazy luxurious buses that don’t run too fast but will make a whole lot of noise as if it has covered a good distance before changing gear). That was how the plane started moving gradually to the run way. I just kept watching with enthusiasm. ‘‘Twas really funny.
After we stationed at the run way it was just as if a formidable force pushed this plane and the speed that this machine used after lazing around got me so scared. At the count of 3 it was very slow ( like 10km/hr) very lazy movement. Before counting 4 the speed just changed( about 400km/hr). I couldn’t believe it because it was as if something pushed it from slow to fast.
The speed continued to increase as I was waiting for the tires to leave the ground..... the noise of the tire on the runway track cannot be over emphasized. Just Like your Normal car on the road. Exactly the same but with a louder sound on the ground.
Soon enough ( within 30 seconds of that great speed). We started leaving the ground gradually. I felt somehow like my head wanted to fall out of me. Defying laws of gravity is really very mysterious. As the plane kept moving up, I started seeing people in front up while we wey dey for back come dey face ground. The plane just faced upwards while I was suspended on my chair facing up inside the plane.
The airport started becoming smaller, smaller and smaller............finally the airport was out of sight!
I started seeing houses like ants, couldn’t see human beings at all.
We continued facing up for about 15 complete minutes moving into the cloud. At this point everybody was fastened in their seatbelts.
After a long period of time. ( like I just said 15 minutes) the plane started leveling its altitude. This time I could see the front people at the same level as we at the back. This means we’re flying at a leveled altitude so to speak.
The plane was so calm, no noise. The place just quiet. I come dey wonder; so this plane as I Dey see am for ground Dey make noise no be so e Dey inside? Oyibo na winsh!
Inside just sounds like you’re in your normal car cruising in a smooth highway with your AC on.
After sometime the plane started tilting towards the right, curving so much like we were going to fall at the other row. Na so I put hand for chest. I started breathing very fast. After some time it will bend again to the opposite direction. For my mind I come dey say “abi this pilot Dey take people play for this plane?
We continued moving till the pilot announced what I didn’t want to hear. “Turbulence “. As soon as he said we were going to experience a turbulence in the next 5 minutes Na so saliva finish for my mouth. I come dey swallow spit. I wanted to sleep but 5 minutes was too much to initiate a sleep...................una goodnight.
More updates with pictures tomorrow........

Lol OP you're doing a good job at painting vivid pictures with your story. And this your suspense sha...
My first flight, I just braced for it. In my mind I was like "Wo, if we crash, we crash abeg. Las las everybody go kpai." Its not like anybody can do anything if something goes wrong sha.
And I figured since everybody is so calm, then its not scary at all.
Those thoughts helped me enjoy the ride. Looking forward to an international flight soon.
Its amazing how much technology has advanced and what we humans are capable of.

TheStranger:Amen and by God's grace before this year runs out.

Soon enough the turbulence started and the plane started shaking like a vehicle that’s matching a very rough surface. All the seats were vibrating. I looked at the wings of the plane and saw how flexible that thing was. I thought it was really stiff but I never knew it was very very flexible. Inside me I started feeling that I’m just flying in a very fragile waterproof called aircraft. After 5 minutes the turbulence was over. The aircraft was still again like as if it wasn’t moving at all.
There’s one unique thing I discovered about planes. When you’re flying in it, you won’t hear the disturbing noise at all. And you won’t even feel it’s moving in a high speed even when you look through the window. You might only observe when the plane is tilting either left, right, up or downwards.
After sometime a female crew member made an announcement that we’d be landing in 15 minutes.
Shortly we were At Abuja! About 45- 50 minutes by my calculations. (Abuja get mountains and rocks sha! Lols). Shortly after that we got another announcement to fasten our seatbelts that we’re about to land at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport. As soon as she announced that the other crew members and some passengers went to seat down with speed fastening their seatbelts.
About 2 minutes after the announcement I started observing our plane tilting downwards.( Abeg o make una correct any grammatical errors o. Lols).
Another thing you’d experience during landing is that the plane won’t just face downwards completely and continuously. It will forcefully move down a bit and level again. It will go down again and level. This is repeated until it reaches the ground. I think that’s the safest way of landing or the normal way of landing.
We started seeing the airport and the runway. Then my mind came down. I waited patiently as we descended on the ground with the plane tyres listening to the tough sound of the tyre on the runway with an intense speed.
As soon as we landed the brake of the plane alone was so fearful like as if the runway won’t be enough for that plane to exhaust all the speed time. After 3 minutes we got to a halt.
I observed the plane’s sound started reducing drastically. ( very lovely sound ). Oyibo get efizzy sha! The sound Dey very intimidating!
Wetin I just dey hear for the plane na “Thank you Jesus”. Me too follow.
We waited for the people in front to leave the plane one after the other until I was out of the plane.
This trip was very exciting. Big until I tell you about my return flight that nearly discouraged me from flying again.
Please stay tuned.......
