My husband and I flew from small children with no problems for over 20 years then one day we took a flight to Munich in a small plane and my husband had a panic attack and tried to get off when they closed the door. It was the boarding, closes of the door, waiting in the seats, taxi-ing along the run way etc all that time when he thought he was still in control and could get off. They sat him at the back of the plane with an aspirin and glass of water for take off and once in the air he was fine. The whole holiday was overshadowed by the thought of the return home and even considered train /car etc. The Hellish return flight on the anniversary of the munich air disaster in similar foggy conditions with flights been cancelled was the last straw and we have not flown for over 10 years. Now we have 3 kids we dont want to pass on our fears and have been taking the ferry to Europe, the fear of terrosim on planes has made the situation worse.
