I was just there on tower/ground on TS1 about an hour ago. It was fun watching planes trying to land soft. I saw a Cessna 208 literally blow off the runway and they ended flight haha

LOL same thing was happening to someone about an hour ago when I was controlling on TS1. They would spawn in and their C172 would tip over trying to taxi!

I even have a photo. I was trying to takeoff 31R and I flipped upside down and skidded on my backside into the grass. Because that’s not proper expert server behavior I left but the point remains…wow!! These winds are atrocious lol.

I’m heading out onto causal so I don’t get a violation. Anyone coming in a 208 to “fly” and by fly I mean levitate with me?

Right now the winds are picking up in LA. I want the power to go out so bad! (I like power outages)

This is fun XD

Also if you want, FVA is heading over to this airport. Winds are dropping in PSP but still high there. See ya over there @Flightfan84 @Ben

Flew there earlier because there I knew the wind was blowing there and IF would be crazy. So Took a p-38, AC-130, and 747- SCA. Didn’t go so well.

I spun out right after landing… And meanwhile those two are doing perfect landings while I’m over here nearly flipping…
