Highest Recorded Wind Part 2

Hey IFC,
I have decided to start a new record topic for the highest wind speed. To enter, simply take a photo flying with very high winds. For part one, use the link.
Due to this competition becoming popular I have decided to section groups by the top 10 (the winning person will not be in this list as they will be on top), 20 and so forth.

Current winner: @Robertine with 256kts!

Oh damn! Be careful the C172 has a crosswind limitation of 15kts.
