My sister and I were on an international flight recently, and the plane began to encounter some strong turbulence.  We were on a large plane, a plane that seats about 9 per row, and usually larger planes are less affected by such turbulence.  As the plane rocked back and forth and did a little jitter dance in the air, it began to creak -- loudly.  I matched eyes with my sister, and across the row from us I heard two ladies begin to talk.  One turned to the other and said, "Wow, that didn't sound good!" and the other replied, "Yeah -- it kind of sounded like that creak in the ship right before the Titanic broke in half and sank."  My sister and I looked at each other and grinned wildly.  It had sounded like the Titanic!
Obviously, mostly because of the fact that I'm here writing this, the plane did not end in the same fate as the Titanic.  :D
