Lift off

The way the air lifts the plane is a


The feeling when the plane gains speed

Faster and faster

Fast enough for 175,000-pound steel object to

Lift from the ground

When you get pulled back into the seat

With the safety beat around your waist

Hoping the plane doesn’t crash.

Did you know that most plane crashes happen in the first 20 minutes

And the last 20 minutes?

But once the seatbelt sign goes off

The plane is no longer in as much danger.

But it is a miracle that the plane takes off to begin with.
