I'm not one of them.
I do, however, have an issue with sitting in the seats on or even behind the wing. If I can see the wing of the plane from my seat I HAVE to keep the window closed.
Why? Where did this strange issue come from?
Well, have you ever seen "The Twilight Zone"???
Years and years ago I saw an episode titled "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" where William Shatner plays a character flying with his wife to a destination after a breakdown 6 months earlier. Outside his window he sees a strange creature on the wing of the plane that is actually damaging the engine area. Any time someone else looks out the window the creature has hopped out of sight. The whole thing escalates and he steals a revolver and ends up opening a window and shooting the creature. When they land, safely, Shatner is hauled away in a straightjacket... though evidence of damage is seen on the wing of the plane.
Anyway, that is the basis of my semi-fear. Can you imagine how terrifying it would be to be flying somewhere and then you glance out your window and some freaky creature is standing there and trying to pull up part of the structure of the wing?! Oh man. Just the fact that something is strong enough to even hold onto the plane at that speed, elevation, temperature, etc...
Ahh, I just shudder to think about it.
I know this is irrational and stupid. It doesn't prevent me from flying... I just don't like to look out the window if I can see the wing.
