All internal flights are like that in Iran.

Haha, reminds me of a quote made by Guido Buchwald after the Euro 92 final.

It's not terrifying at all. It's great. Even in a massive insane windstorm where the pilot is flying on a diagonal to land straight, he still survives the side-winds and gets them down safe. I mean, how safe is flying that even in those conditions the pilot gets everyone home safe and well?

Albeit, in some cases, not entirely in control of their emotions.

Christ. I'm flying to Germany tonight. Can someone please reassure me about the weather, wind speed, etc.?

I suspect that's not all they weren't entirely in control of.

Yes, I accept that the counterpoint of this is that flying in good conditions now seems immeasurably safer.

"Nearly crashes".

Do they give Nobel Prizes for "Nearly Literature"?
