I've found when I did not get my window seat on my last Q400 flight, I was so tensed up prior to landing because I couldn't see how close we were to the ground.

Indeed, I am one of those few who fly simply because of the choice of flying, if/when I can.
Nice pictures to along - the situation of cancelled flights seems to be handled quite well by Qantas.

I am the same sort of flyer as CollegeAviator. Try and fly when I can.
