So flight is Sunday on Virgin America SFO to NYC. I am okay with the dynamics, the plane, the training of pilots, etc. Good with landings, take-offs, even turbulence. I feel like I am okay. I thank SOAR for that. I also love love love Virgin America and have been listening to that amazing safety video on Youtube for fun.
But terrorism is my fear now. I am a bit wondering that because there is a threat due to laptops, and someone just got caught smuggling a fake bomb on a united flight in Toronto, it feels like the baddies are planning something. So do I take this knowledge and cancel my flight? Am I an informed consumer by saying hm, there seems to be some threats to aviation. We don't have to take this trip. The vision I have is a sudden boom and we are flying through the air, and me thinking what a bad mom I am, as my kids fall to the earth and me too. This is a likely again psychic equivalence, that you mention. But how much of a threat really is terrorism?
