    Thanks, Clymenestra.

      to me after the crash.  A year or so after the crash I began flying a lot.  For a few years I told the flight crew that I was nervous and why ... and they worked very hard to get me through the flight and be okay with air travel again.

        That didn't keep me from sympathizing and helping those that were fearful.

        •  not so much fear of flying (0+ / 0-)

          it's the fear of crashing and dying and of being able to do nothing to mitigate it.
