Head to the area between Australia and Antarctica and you can often find 180+ kt winds at 32-34k ft

Did some digging and found these at 42000 above Japan

I always appreciate a hundred kt tail wind in IF. From irl records, looks like it won’t go a whole lot faster very often. irl: “787 Dreamliner was clocked at 801mph over Pennsylvania as it rode the fastest jet stream on record, blowing east at 231mph.”

231mph is 200kts.

@Aw3somedude98 you seem to have broken that record at 206kts!

The world record fastest measured jetstream was 225kts (259mph), by a weather balloon above Japan at fl340: Fastest jet stream on Earth | Guinness World Records

Lol I was the same. I flew into Amsterdam about an hour ago and the winds were crazy…
