Influencer Anna Paul (pictured) shared a helpful tip with her millions of followers that she heard from a pilot who has reduced her fear of flying
Anna used a cup of jelly and a rolled up piece of napkin to demonstrate why a plane won’t fall from the sky during turbulence in a video that has racked up a whopping 18.8 million views
“Pretend this is the sky you’re flying in, this jelly here, and this napkin is the plane—trust me,” she said, pushing the napkin into the center of the jelly cup.
“That’s you flying through the air, there’s pressure from below, pressure from above, from the side, pressure comes from everywhere.”
Anna said turbulence is like the plane shaking in jelly and the pressure coming from all directions will keep it from falling from the sky.

“If you’re on a plane and you feel turbulence, imagine yourself in jelly like this and know it can’t just fall — you’re stuck in the middle of the sky because of all the pressure everywhere,” she said.
“And no plane has ever crashed because of turbulence, so don’t worry.”
Anna said the tip helped her overcome her fear of flying and many in the comments agreed.
What is Turbulence?
The disruption of airflow that helps an airplane fly results in vibrations and is called turbulence. Turbulence, also known as air pockets, can temporarily cause a sudden loss of height.
What causes turbulence?
Air that creates the atmosphere is always in motion. Airplanes use this movement to fly.
In order for an aircraft to fly stably, the airflow passing over and under the wings must be regular.
However, some weather conditions can cause irregularities in the airflow and cause air bubbles to form. This is why turbulence occurs.
There are other factors that cause turbulence and these factors also list the different types of turbulence such as clear air turbulence, temperature inversion turbulence, mechanical turbulence, etc.
What does flying in turbulence mean?
Flying in turbulence happens when the aircraft is overtaken in flight in a disturbed airflow. Aircraft can vibrate in turbulence.
While some of them can be mild, some can be violent. Pilots can inform passengers in the event of turbulence and all passengers are required to fasten their seat belts.
Can planes crash due to turbulence?
Turbulence does not cause a plane to crash, but it does cause panic among the passengers. Aircraft are designed to survive all types of turbulence.
Violent turbulence can seem scary. Pilots, however, are specially trained for this. All you have to do is fasten your seat belt and stay calm until the turbulence is over.
“This really helped me SO much,” said one viewer.
‘It takes six hours to fly from Bali to Sydney. I almost went to the pharmacy for a Valium to help me. Thank you,’ write for a second.
‘Another pilot told me it’s like a pothole or bump in the road when you’re driving!!’ added a third.
