ONCE YOU’VE FLOWN in a plane a few times, it can be easy to take the whole process for granted. “Flying in a metal tube? What’s the big deal? Now leave me watch Now You See Me 2 in peace.”

A few days ago, a woman named Elaine Filadelfo was getting a flight when she got talking to her seatmate, a woman named Sue preparing to visit her daughter.

It soon emerged that it was the woman’s first ever flight.


And, as you can imagine, Sue thought the whole thing was very novel.

(Even if the flight experienced delays.)

Once the airline copped that it was her first ever time on a plane, they upgraded her and made sure it was the experience of a lifetime.

Sue was a little nervous before takeoff…

But once she was up in the air, she was happy out and totally mesmerised

After a touch of turbulence, the flight landed safely. Sue’s first response? “That’s it? It’s over now?”

And the most wonderful part of the story? She’s going to get her daughter to fly with her next time

We’re not tearing up. You are.
