I actually hit 190 once, but I can’t access the replay because I don’t have live.

Wow! Unfortunately due to lack of evidence it cannot be counted sorry.

If only replay showed the wind during that time 😪
Did some hurricane hunting yesterday and flew right into the worst parts, 115-130 knts, guess I gotta do it live again tomorrow.

If you go between Australia and New Zealand you can find patches of 140+ knot winds on a regular basis

I’ve had 175kts crossing the ocean but i never took pictures as it’s always in my favour i took a picture of this one because it made a 3 hour flight into almost 4 and a half hour so

My highest wind recorded not due to a glitch like the 600+ knot one above. Fully natural.

I was making a flight across the pond from EGLL-KJFK and I got winds at 200kts.

How is that even possible??

I recorded winds around 167 kts while crossing over the Andes into Santiago. I was unable to get a screenshot but I have footage on my YT channel.
