I have just returned from the USA and the flight was a little bumpie!

I wish to gain more knowledge of air turbulance and why it can affect
something as massive as a 767.

I understand a little on air density and something of aerodynamics,
but wish to become better educated and so not be as worried when my tea joins
me on my seat

I'd appreciate some references to this problem but would appreciate a
simple explanation without the complex fluid dynamics maths.

Thanks for any help
