While flying, I noticed my GS that it had almost 640kts (in a 737-700) that i see it ridiculous for that aircraft.
They are indeed, check the Windy site or app It lets you check winds at different altitudes.
Yes winds at higher altitude is more common. Your GS is your airspeed + the wind thus why you were going so fast.
640 knots… what!!!
Seems like you hit a very strong “jetstream”!
Yes, in a 737-700.
Well, it’s now 632kts and my plane are now violently shaking due to turbulence
Currently flying from KDAL-KLGA
To answer the question in the title, yes. Winds on the ground normally range between 0 to roughly 15 or 20 knots, while above 28,000 feet, wind can range from normally 30-40 knots all the way up to 200 knots in the jet stream.
Ok then. Thanks for all your help.
