Why do they go from being really excited to really terrified?

Before my son's first plane ride, he talked about airplanes, riding planes, and how excited he was, obsessively — he would also get really upset when I would tell him it was not yet time for us to ride the plane. I was sure to explain to him everything about the trip and what it would be like. And then the big day came, when we finally got on the plane (the very same plane he talked to every stranger in the grocery store about for the past month), and he completely lost it. "No plane! No plane! Me no like planes," he screamed. Huh?
