Flight of Fright

Caleb Flanagan

The Obstacle

The obstacle that I had to over come was flying in an airplane without an adult on board with my sister and I.


"How was the flight?" my grandfather asked.

"Better now that we have landed."


​When my sister and I arrived at the terminal, I was nervousabout getting on the plane. I had never flown without an adult before in my life. The whole experience was nerve racking. I kept looking over my shoulder to make sure that no one was following us. The reason being is because of all that I have heard on the news about kids getting snatched in various locations.

​Then finally we got aboard the airplane and sat down. I was starting to ease up a little bit, when we started to take off. Thatwas when in the back of my mind, I was thinking of all the things that could go wrong with the plane. An hour passed, and the plane started to descend. I knew that my worries were soon going to be over. I was thankful that the transition between states would soon be over and that I would not have to worry anymore. When the plane finally touched down, I was relieved. I could not wait to get out of the airport and into a car and drive to my grandparents’ house.

Concluding Statement

After that experience, I now know that flying without anyone else is not all that terrifying after all.
