Flying isn't for everyone...


The fear of flying is considered irrational due to the fact that, as the BBC outlined, you're more likely to die from a car accident or cancer than in an airplane crash.

For many, airplanes carry way too many risks to get on board of one...


Here in the States, seventeen percent of us have admitted to being too afraid to fly, according to a survey conducted by Boeing.

This includes many different reasons.



Including claustrophobia, the fear of crashing, and even the fear of just simply being in the air.

One woman was recently freaked out while flying after she spotted a motionless plane out of her window.

Though not everyone was as amazed as she was...

Amber Baker shot and shared to TikTok a video of the motionless plane.

Filmed above Chicago, the apparently unmoving plane can be seen in the distance.

In the video, Baker says: "Ok guys, tell me I am not tripping right now."

"The plane is not moving. It's so crazy. It's so strange. What is happening?"

She then explains that her friend previously sent her a video showing the same phenomenon...

And now, here she was seeing it herself.

But, it's not actually motionless.

And there's actually a pretty simple explanation for it.

When similar footage was captured last year, the Metro's science and technology editor Jeff Parsons explained: "In all likelihood the motion of the car is counteracting the slowing down of the plane - possibly as it comes in to land."

"Add to that the shifting perspective of the camera and it could seem as if the plane was stationary in the air."

One TikTok user also said: "You're tripping."

TikTok

"The jetliner is simply moving at the same speed as your jetliner. Jetliner passenger vertigo."
