Flying is statistically the safest way to travel. However, there are a ton of different reason to hate flying. For one, it just seems unnatural for humans to be hurtling through the air in a big metal tube at hundreds of miles an hour. And, as the video below shows, many things could go wrong with the aircraft while you are in the air.
The people who were aboard this Singapore Airlines found out the hard way what can exactly go wrong. About 2 hours into their flight, the cabin started to smell like gasoline. They turned around and made an emergency landing. The passengers thought the nightmare was over, but it was actually just beginning! The plane was on fire!
Thankfully, firefighters were able to put out the flames after the scary landing. The terrifying moment was captured by a passenger in the video below.
