That has thoroughly p*d me off! Landing at any runway that isn’t green is not possible. My control sensitivity was too low anyway. I had no control of the plan whatsoever on final. I couldn’t actually fight the wind AT ALL! F that. No XP either - what’s all this about loads of XP? xD 30mph consistent crosswinds are fine. Random 34mph gusts, are not.

said “Thank-you, good day!” to the controller, and crashed.

Once with 52KT gusts earlier today, and a second time with 44KT a few minutes ago, yep ;)

Direct crosswind? Or head/tail wind.

I’m trying again, but not with crosswind. I’ll turn my sensitivity up a bit too.

I at least mastered the landing.

By the way who is currently controlling JFK?

Try landing at 22L - I dare you!
