Today, I flew from Atlanta to Philadelphia!! There’s not much to say about this flight besides that it was very windy. The landing in Philadelphia was one of my toughest (Next to Newark). On approach, there was a 17kt crosswind with a 23kt gust. I touched down pretty softly but it was a very bumpy descent. On the flip side, the flight back to Atlanta was fairly smooth. This landing was greased and the approach was pretty simple. We finally landed on 26R versus landing in 8L btw. Overall, today was a good day 😁 Enjoy the pictures below and I’ll see you all in the skies…

Haha I can’t even be mad about this comment 😂 actually I was just a little but as stated, a 23kt crosswind will definitely take you off heading a little.

😂😂 no need to give up. No landing is gonna be greasy in a 23kt crosswind. I managed to land soft enough, but I wouldn’t say grease. Keep practicing aileron deflection… it is very helpful
