Ok, It was my first time flying transatlantic, and also my first time flying in a 747. We were on approach, and I did not sleep at all, so i'm running on 30+ hours without sleep. I heard a noise, later, another, and another. So i moved over to look out the window at the wing, and nearly had a heart attack, cause the wing was breaking apart! Seriously, it bent down and curved inward so bad!
BTW: It was also the first time i ever saw flaps...
WOW! That sounds scary Did you land safely? I know! You crashed...
No no no, i was a passenger, in a REAL one...The joke of the story was I saw the flaps fully extended, thats what i meant...lol
Oooh! I misunderstood your story. I'm sorry.
I got it now. Anyhow, nice story.
I don't remember my first transatlantic flight, but I did like 4 or 5 (in real life, as you were saying in your story). So I can't tell my story, but I can say that when I was little I asked the flight attendant to go to the cockpit. Finally, I went to the cockpit. It was really cool. All the buttons and switches were moving by themselves. I was little, so I didn't understand what was happening there.
😀 I remember my first flight,Gatwick to Faro,and I sat the whole flight watching a washer under a rivet rotate on the wing
Every time I take a window seat by the wing, I love to watch the flaps deploy. When they start coming out I always say" show me your feathers you beautiful thing". It is a lovely thing to see.
Agus- I am old and still don't understand what all the switches are for!
