LAX is using 06 and 07, I’d say that that’s even more rare than KSNA using 02.

The narrow mountain valley to the northwest of KPSP is the second windiest place on earth, more than chicago. thats why if you were to ever travel through there you would see a whole crap-ton of wind turbines. its also really cool to watch, from twentynine palms highway at the base of the northern mountain, the clouds stay on the Los Angeles side of the valley.

in this aspect, i commend FDS for the realistic wind conditions.

I know that because usually from school I see them landing on 24 and 25 but no they are over the city at 24 and 25. And here them outside right now and saw some liveries like SAS.

landed safly in KPSP, thankfully, it was a very smooth landing considering 21kts of crosswind ! :)
