An Australian woman has gone viral for sharing why there’s no reason to be afraid of turbulence on a plane after speaking to a ‘real pilot’. 

Influencer Anna Paul used a cup of jelly and a balled up piece of napkin to demonstrate why a plane won’t fall from the sky during turbulence in a video that has amassed a whopping 18.8million views. 

The 23-year-old, who is one of Australia’s top earners on OnlyFans, explained there’s so much air pressure coming from every direction it is as if a plane is flying in jelly.

‘Pretend this is the air that you’re flying in, this jelly right here, and this napkin is the aeroplane – just trust me,’ she said as she pushes the napkin into the middle of the jelly cup.

‘That is you flying through the sky there’s pressure from the bottom, pressure from the top, from the sides, pressure coming from everywhere.’

Anna said turbulence is like the plane shaking in jelly and the pressure coming from every direction will prevent it from falling from the sky.

‘When you’re on a plane and you feel turbulence just imagine yourself in jelly like this and know that it can’t just fall – you’re stuck in the middle of the air because of all the pressure everywhere,’ she said. 

‘And there’s never been a plane crash from turbulence, so you do not have to be scared.’ 

Anna said the tip has helped her overcome her fear of flying and many in the comments agreed. 

What is turbulence?

The disruption in the air current which helps a plane to fly results in shakes and it is referred to as turbulence. Also known as air pockets, turbulence can cause a sudden loss of altitude temporarily. 

What causes turbulence? 

Air that creates the atmosphere is always in motion. Planes use this motion to be able to fly. 

For a plane to fly stably, airflow passing over and under the wings need to be regular. 

However, some weather events can cause irregularity in the airflow and this creates air pockets. This is the reason why turbulence happens. 

There are other factors causing turbulence and these factors also name the different turbulence types such as clear air turbulence, temperature inversion turbulence, mechanical turbulence, etc.

What does flying in turbulence mean? 

Flying in turbulence happens when the plane is caught up in disrupted airflow during the flight. Planes can shake in turbulence. 

While some of them can be mild, some can be violent. Pilots can inform passengers in case 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 although it creates panic among passengers. Planes are engineered to survive all types of turbulence. 

Violent turbulences may seem scary. However, pilots are specially trained accordingly. The only thing you need to do is to fasten your seat belt and remain calm until the turbulence ends.

‘This genuinely has helped me SO much,’ one viewer said. 

‘Flying from Bali to Sydney in six hours. Nearly went to the pharmacy for a Valium to help me. Thank you,’ write a second. 

‘Another pilot told me it’s comparable to a pothole or bump in the road when you’re driving!!’ added a third.
