Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew home (Atlanta) after a LONG 4 day trip. This flight was one of my lease favorites as the connection kept going in and out causing me to lose contact with ATC. It went out so many times and caused those little red marks to be on my replay, which I hate. Then, on my downwind onto 26R, the wind caused me to turn late and it was very upsetting. The landing was normal, I wouldn’t say grease but we landed 😂 What can I say, not all flights are gonna be smooth. See you all in the skies!!

Every now and then we get some calm days

Somewhere in California 😂 I’ll try to find that information

I would hope that’s not how he flies. Especially during the colder months, the winds are picking up 😬 I don’t have a problem with windy approaches… they make it fun

They do! I love a good crabbing moment
