For me, flying has always been an enjoyable experience. I request the window seat. I kick back with a solid book or my favorite Macy Gray album. I relax, because I thoughtfully consider all the reasons not to fear any type of danger while I'm cruising the friendly skies.
Then, I saw this video of a Boeing 777 landing during a 75 mph wind storm in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, late last week. Needless to say, my comfort level at 20,000+ feet has been sufficiently blown to shit.
