SLJ - D3A1

I've never been on a plane before in my life.  I am a little bit nervous, but mostly excited.  

I watched a safety video by some of my favourite sports team, the All Blacks, to learn a few things about flying safety. 

1. When you see the seatbelt sign, make it click.  

2. Turn all gadgets to flight mode.

3. Listen to the flight crew.

Bonus thing I learnt, Israel Dagg is a pretty good rapper.


  1. Haha! Great blog Jacob.

    He is a pretty good rapper isn't he.

    What is a rule, or maybe a feature for the plane you would make for an airline? I know you haven't been on a plane, but you might come up with something interesting.

    Kia kaha,


  2. Hi Jacob,

    I didn't go on a plane until I was 11 and that was only a really short little flight. I still sometimes get nervous on flights - just last night I was on a flight that bumped and crashed it's way across the Pacific Ocean and there were moments I felt like the wings must fall off - but luckily we landed safely in Auckland. Flying is really an amazing engineering achievement and I hope you get to experience it one day in the very near future - just ask mum nicely!

  3. Kia Ora Jacob,

    When I was in year 6, the Ambassadors flew to Wellington, and upon landing, the winds really picked up, and we all thought that we would crash!

    On a different note, if you could create your own airplane, what would it look like?

    Keep it up!
