Andrew don't worry, the first time I pulled back on my stick, and watched as the huge wings left the ground, I was nervous also. When I got to 35,000 ft I was blue in the face. then when I looked at my airspeed of 450 knots, I got dizzy!! When I looked back and saw 280 people looking at me I realized the tremendous pressure on me....so many lives resting in the plams of my hands!
Then the turbulance!!! BOUNCE BOUNCE BOUNCE... I pulled my belt tighter to hold me in my seat...feeling sick to my stomach.
Finally as I extended the flaps and tried to contact the tower, there was nobody there!! I let down the gear with sweat dripping off my forehead. The weight of this huge jet pulling at my arms!
Suddenly just as I was about to touch down........A crosswind that nearly slammed my left wing into the runway!!
Steady....steady...... finally as the nose flared, I heard the tires skreetch on the ground to the sensation of driving an 18 wheeler on gravel....Reverse thrusts!!!!
Wher's the doggie bag??
Finally I get the 777 to a stop and jump out of my seat, green in the face, wet in the pants, and dry in the mouth only to hear my wife yelling, "did you take out the garbage yet" !
We are talking about flight simulation............aren't we? LOL LOL LOL
You'll do fine next time Andrew...now you know what to expect and can prepare yourself..
Keep us informed
Oh and by the way, you are never a failure if you've tried your best!
