I was just recently crusing at 34,000 feet testing out the DC-10 when i encountered winds ranging from 170-205kts. Just thought I would let you all know if anyone was interested, was indeed pretty hectic having it slam into my nose.
@schyllberg winds eh?
Easterly? Or westerly?
The winds are facing east from Japan.
Winds over Japan are always easterly. Which is bad for my current flight from RJAA-RCTP.
I have found looking at windy before flights it’s where the strongest winds are
Hey, these were the winds I was telling @schyllberg about!
Most winds globally apart from tropics are strong western
Northern hemisphere blows east southern tend to blow more west.
also i had the 180kt ish winds blowing northerly in japan
It think it’s actually both West I got it mixed up
You were actually right the first time.
OPPs lol it’s 11 at night here 😂
Yeh I’ve heard that but I am yet to see the winds in the Southern hemisphere blow to the west
around France and through the English channel I had wind from 90-180kt at 36000ft! but I believe its dropped to 100
