Aeroplane induced headaches are uncommon and rarely encountered. A 27-year-old right handed male, not a known diabetic or hypertensive and a frequent flier presented with a history of repeated episodes of severe headache upon aeroplane descent for four years. The pain is localized to the left supra-orbital region lasting for 8-10 minutes, associated with watering in left eye without redness. General physical and systemic examinations were unremarkable. Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging and MR Angiography of brain was unremarkable. He was advised tablet nimesulide (mouth dissolving), 100 mg upon premonition of pain to which he responded favourably.
