Crazy winds over EHAM

Crazy winds over EHAM.

I am currently circling over the channel at the moment, having attempted a landing in 40+kt winds at Schippol, Amsterdam, Holland. (Expert Server as GH-O99 )

Does anyone have any of these wind/weather tracking apps and can forecast… Should I continue to hold and retry a landing at EHAM or divert across to Brussels?

Weather update- It’s windy

It says for me that it’s gusting 15kts at 220° so a landing on 22 should be fine.

Keep holding. Hold for another 5 to 10 minutes, if the wind doesn’t die down go over to Brussles.

The winds are 17 MPH sustained (27 kmh) gusting to 26 MPH (41 kmh). I think you should try and land again but if you have to abort, go to Brussels.

Had to be a diversion to Brussels I’m afraid… Anyone else tried a EHAM landing tonight?

Nope was not a successful landing :( I was trying to fight the wind but it didn’t work, right after I landed I skidded off the runway and ended up doing 360 spins so I despawned. I was going to do a go around until I span out :(
