‘I had no idea that we had two dangerous encounters’ Julie Gichuru narrates a life threatening experience in a plane

Media Personality Julie Gichuru has shared a life threatening experience travelling to Kigali, Rwanda.

She narrated how the plane had a problem landing twice because it was raining heavily. The pilot aborted landing twice and all this time she didn’t know what was going on as she was busy listening to music.

Julie2

“Flew from Nairobi to Kigali this afternoon. As we tried to land in Kigali it was overcast and raining so we aborted landing twice. This flight has taught me some key lessons.

1. I had earphones on, listening to music- loud, as I often do. I had no idea that we had two dangerous encounters. If we went down I would have been oblivious till the last few seconds. Being present in the moment is an important thing… Or, is it? 🤨”

Julie3

The situation was a scary one and she other people were literally praying and even some recorded goodbye videos for their loved ones.


2. When we landed I realised just how serious the situation was. Others on the flight had been praying and doing all manner of things in alarm. @john_seel actually recorded a goodbye video for his Mum! Yes, he did! 🤣 (we want to watch it John 🤣) So sweet though 😅 …and there I was, totally clueless.
Perspective is a fascinating thing.

But despite everything, she learned a lot from the whole experience.

Julie1

3. Actually, if anything I was in great spirits while everyone else was panicking. Unaware of the aborted landings I did notice we were off course. This was terrain I had never seen before. I thought we had simply been redirected. I said to myself, ‘sometimes in life it is so important to go off course, in going onto a less travelled path you see new things and learn so much more.’ I was very impressed with my profound thought! As people prayed and recorded goodbye videos for loved ones I was marvelling at the terrain and taking pictures thinking to myself, ‘Wakanda beautiful continent is this!’ 😂😂😂 (Aren’t the pics lovely though!) Good people, Isn’t life interesting!? 😄😄😄🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤
