Anyone who has flown here knows that when the crew tells everyone to fasten their seatbelts, the plane will shake on its own. You quickly go through the worst-case scenarios in your head, tell yourself it’s just “turbulence” that happens all the time and you’re safe, and start praying.

When the plane is in the middle of a flight and the airflow is messed up, this is called flying in turbulence. Because of this, the plane starts to shake, sometimes just a little and sometimes a lot. Seatbelts are very important because strong turbulence can throw people out of their seats. Still, turbulence doesn’t cause a plane to crash unless it leads to a mistake being made by a person. It can, however, cause injuries and panic among the passengers.

So it’s no wonder that nobody likes rough seas. But some people hate it so much that they’re afraid to fly. Anna Paul, a TikToker, recently shared a helpful tip from “a real pilot” that should put an end to everyone’s worries. Anna showed us with a jar of jelly and a napkin why we should all chill out, take it easy, and enjoy the ride, ups and downs and all.

When it comes to flying in turbulence, TikToker Anna Paul recently shared a helpful tip she learned from a pilot.

If you fly every once in a while, you’ve probably been through a rough patch of air where all the worst things you can think of feel very real. Most likely, you saw turbulence, which is when air is stirred up from a calmer state by different forces and becomes wild and unpredictable. Most of the time, turbulence in the air is caused by three things: mountains, jet streams, and storms.

Even though it’s easy to understand how thunderstorms cause turbulence, it’s a fairly new discovery that storms can also make the sky bumpy in faraway places. Robert Sharman, who studies turbulence at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), says that when storm clouds grow quickly, they push air away. This creates waves in the atmosphere, which can break up into turbulence hundreds or even thousands of miles away.

People who are afraid of flying often have turbulence anxiety, which is based on the fear that the plane will fall or crash. But Marilyn Smith, an aeronautics engineer at Georgia Tech, says, “Everything on an airplane has been tested to death, so it won’t fail. In the lab, full-sized planes are put through physical tests that put them under much more stress than they will ever feel in the air

. Smith also says that high-powered computers have made it possible to model more kinds of hypothetical situations digitally. But if you want to know if an airplane design could be changed to make turbulence go away completely, Smith says it’s almost impossible.

And this is what people had to say about the tip of the jelly.
