Trapped Wind

Notwithstanding the recent flights disaster and with scant regard for my nerves , the teenage ( 15) daughter is heading off on a flight to Belfast to attend a fiftieth party this weekend ( one of her favourite uncles ) , necessitating yet another early departure from school ( what will her final exam results be and will it all be my fault ? ) .

Shortly before the scheduled preparture time I receive an unexpected text ( most unexpected as her mobile phone was lost from her trouser pocket earlier this week ) , however she seems to have acquired another , stating that she has Trapped Wind with unfortunate consequences but luckily she is dealing with them in the bathroom . ( not quite her choice of language . )

I shudder to think . Any passengers of nervous disposition are likely to be buffeted rather more than is usual on the Newcastle to Belfast route this wet and ( now ) windy Friday . Good luck to them I say .

Let's hope she doesn't read this or my feet wont be touching the ground either ...

Flying is a problem since there is no dog around to blame I suppose.

Trapped Wind ? Youve never heard of it ? Its very painful ... ultimately for everyone !

One has to wonder about the effects on Ambient Pressure inside the aircraft if the Trapped Wind is released en route to one's destination? A kind of in-flight turbulence about one's feet? No wonder people suffer from painful ears..all that Inequal Pressure and suchlike. Of course, never having flown myself,and never being Troubled by Wind Issues, I can only guess at these matters...
