Even though flying with an airplane has been proven to be the safest way to travel the world, people are still afraid to get on planes. Although, who can blame them? If something does go wrong on a plane, there is nowhere that you can go and this is why flying is so terrifying to most people. However, what a woman named Kristen Wiley experienced while the airplane was still on the tarmac will send shivers down your spine!

20. Long Line


Don’t you hate the long lines that you have to sit through whenever you board a plane? This is the most annoying thing about choosing to fly instead of driving somewhere…

19. Security Check Up


As if waiting in line for half an hour is not enough, passengers still have to go and get checked up by the TSA. On the bright side of things, the TSA does this in order to make sure that all flights are safe.

18. Boarding The Plane


After you wait in the long lines and get your baggage checked up, you finally get to board the plane. This is where things start getting better, right? Well, this wasn’t the case for Kristen Wiley.
