Incoming flight ..... Yip, selfies can be confronting, revealing and disturbing to others. This is no exception.
The southern end of Wellington airport runway is awesome. 20 meters past the tarmac end is an interlocking concrete block sea wall, then you’re in the drink. We’ve all had hairy landings there on crosswind days where once on terra firma all on board clap loudly in appreciation of the captains skills while hiding their vomit bags.
It was raining and the skies brooding.
There is an easy access gap in the fence underneath big Keep Out signs. You can almost reach up and touch the under bellies of incoming aircraft, and feel the need to duck down.
Don’t know why I chose the mouth open look, it was meant to be one of pretended fear, though I have no fear of flying.
Some do ....... it’s called Aviaphobia.
They say we have a 1 in 11 million chance of being involved in an airplane accident. Interesting statistics which I take with a grain of salt, having survived one crash 20 years back, in a Cessna 172 (which was bent up taken away in pieces the next day) plus two close shaves in helicopters.
Life goes on. We all take chances.
They also say a cat has 9 lives.
