Flying into typhoon Lekima

Hello all,
Today I went on a flight around ROIG, with @J2S I did it in a B787 IF 2018 livery, where a caregory 4 hurricane Lekima is raging🌀. To let you know this was my first crosswind landing and it was really smooth!

In cruise, nothing happened except that the wings were shaking… Lots!

Moments before touching down, lots of rudder was needed here!

Landing was so smooth I didn’t realise I landed myself 🤣. This is my smoothest on my record. Bit ironic because I did it in a hurricane

It is a typhoon, since it is occurring in the Pacific.

I really enjoy that wing flex. Anyways, how are the winds in IF. Cuz I know they are pretty strong in real life, as that typhoon is currently over my city.
