When I arrived at the airport I became very nervous again and my friends had to keep me
from going right back home. After they talked to me for a while I decided to go on with my
trip but the seat belts nearly made me change my mind again. I wanted to be able to jump
out before the plane crashed if the pilot had any trouble. I finally fastened the belt and
closed my eyes while the plane started to move down the runway. When I opened them again,
I couldn't believe what I saw. The plane was moving smoothly along and I could see the land
just as though it were a map below the plane.
