One Heck Of A Plane Ride

by Spencer

My dream started off with me sitting on the ground near the back of the plane. But there was no back TO the plane. Instead there was a deck with only a fence around the edges. It was getting close to night time and out behind the plane i could see two moons and many, many, stars. I badly wanted to get my telescope and look at them. But then suddenly the whole plane was engulfed into a cloud. Right after we started hitting turbelents and i was very scared. I could not see the people 5 feet in front of me in the cloud. I was closing my eyes and said out loud, Man! clouds, turbelents, scary music! (oddly in the background scary music was playing...) I hate this!!! I was extremely freaked out. But then when i opened my eyes i was on a normal seat in the plane and i was sitting next to my dad.

They announced that we were going to begin descending. But we were decending waaay too fast. Suddenly we burst from the clouds above and mountains were visible very close to to the plane. And we were heading straight toward one! i was holding on to my seat very very hard. Then right as we were about to crash into the peak of the mountain we veered up and right. (i was watching it from like a 3rd person's point of view above the plane) but we turned too hard and did a flip in the air and i felt a weightless experience. We were now out of control and heading straight down toward the runway.

I was beginning to think these were probably ganna be my last moments alive. But instead of crashing on the ground we appeared to bounce but i was still extremely frightened. Then after another about 10 seconds of horror we finally landed and i was completely relieved! but as i looked to my left i saw my dad leaning against the seat in front of him. I worriedly asked, Dad! are you okay??! and he replied, yes im fine. But this crazy flight was not over yet. Apparently a buffalo had strayed onto the runway but instead of trying to avoid it we were trying to hit it with the nose of the plane. We hit it several times but it was very large. They then dispatched some vehicals to take care of the buffalo. We were now connected to the airport. We proceded off the plane and as we exited we recieved a plack of everyone who was on the plane. Judging from the amount of pictures i saw i would say there was anywhere from 30-50 people aboard. We walked up to a front desk in the airport and exclaimed, Thank God we're Alive!!! my dad said i know!
I then started to wonder about when the rest of my family would arrive and if they were going to land safely. On the front desk there was a paper with picture of previous crashes that had occured. There was alot. My dad told me how we were now in India. Then somehow we were talking to a guy and he was telling us that he was a astronaut and he was showing us an album of all the picture he had. (about 5 nights later i had a dream on the moon) Somewhere around here the dream slowly ended.... Some things that tie in with the dream is that about 20 minutes before i fell asleep i was watching star wars and they were in there plane like things on a planet veering in and out of hills not hitting them--that explains the one part. and the other is that i play a game in real life called flight simulator and on one mode when you hit the ground you bounce. So that is my dream!!

Quite a dream
by: Emma

well that was quite a dream, and i had to laugh. It's true it might be because of the movie and games, but it also might be because of difficulties in your life.

I would probably get the same effect from watching Star Wars/Treck. Both are pretty good so,wait is the fighting simulator realistic or do you fight on a trampoline in real life.Ether way this is Hilarious.
