Washington: Former 'Friends' star Jennifer Aniston developed a fear of flying after being caught in an electrical storm on a flight to New York City.

Aniston revealed that she had been afraid of flying ever since going through a particularly harrowing experience of being caught in an electric storm while on her way from Toronto to New York, and though she has managed to conquer part of her fear, she admits that she still gets nervous every time she has to board a plane.

"I had one really bad flight where we were caught in an electrical storm. It was from Toronto to New York, which is an hour flight and it took two hours. "We shouldn't have been in the air. We were flying and every once in a while I'd see a field and I'd say, 'Just land it, put it down, put it on the freeway!'" Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

"What scares me is taking off, because I don't understand how the plane gets up there. I've heard all about the aerodynamics, the speed, the engine. Of course, when your numbers up, it's up. Maybe I'm just a control freak. I'm still nervous - though much better than I was," she added. (ANI)
