Are you leery of flying?

 

Dameon Winslow, Asbury Park - Yeah, I’m scared to death. If something happens, you just can’t jump out and run like with a car or train. For me, no boats, no planes. At least not now, I’m too afraid.

Neil aka “The Silver Fox” Den Braven, Ocean Grove - I don’t mind the flying, it’s the airports, very inconsiderate! I just got back from flying to see my kids. I got cancelled three times. Very inconsiderate. Other than that, it’s the only way to go!

Terri Fasolo, Asbury Park - Yes, I’m always leery. I never get on a plane. Who would right now? With all that is going on in the world. It’s sad. It really is.

Bob Gould, Oakhurst - It depends in the size of the broom. I wouldn’t fly overseas on an airplane, I have too much work and I can’t swim. I’m a plumbing contractor.

Jesi Halprin, Asbury Park - No, not at all. I’ve flown so many times, especially in the past year. I don’t think about it. I think it’s safe.

Beth Shabazian, Belmar & Sue Hitcher, Atlanta - Beth: We were just talking about that this morning. I’m terrified of flying in the first place, and more so lately. Sue: I fly frequently, easily and it’s the best way to get there. I feel like I’m in my living room. No sense of being up in the air at all. I flew here Wednesday.

John & Connie Lysko, Ocean - No, not at all. In fact, we’re flying to France in September. We have ‘Wander-lust.’ We love to travel. John recently retired and our major goal is to do as much traveling as we can.

Jill Magnuson, Ocean Grove - In the states I would fly. I would go out of the country where it was safe right now. I wouldn’t want to travel to Afghanistan or any other place where they’re at war with a no fly zone.

Lee Morgan, Ocean Grove - Not in the least. Statistically it’s a very safe way to get around. I’ve done a lot of flying, both long and short flights. My longest flight was 14 hours. I don’t think twice about it.

Jessica Rant, Ocean - I don’t go away too much, but right now I wouldn’t travel outside of the US. It seems too risky right now. In state, I feel safe and I’d fly.

Virginia Simpson, Spring Lake Heights - I’m sort of half and half. I think I would fly if I have to go somewhere. If I was going some place good. I wouldn’t just go for no reason at all. If it’s my time to go ...But it really is scary.
